If you're involved in organising a Pride event next year, or you think you
might go to one, then there's going to be a new free guide which you'll definitely
want to pick up..
For the first time someone's come up with the idea of
publishing a Pride Guide, which details all the major gay and lesbian events taking
place in the UK, including times, dates and location.|
It's the idea of Haydn Price, Marketing Director of Cardiff Pride, who told us
why the guide was needed.
"If you live in London, you'll probably know all about
the Mardi Gras, but won't necessarily know what's going on in Birmingham or Glasgow.
The Pride Guide will help you plan your year."
Of course not all of us go to
more than one event, but Hadyn says that everyone he's spoken to thinks it's a
great idea. "The idea came out of a discussion during a meeting of Pride organisers
from around the country and they were all enthusiastic."|
Pride Guide 2002 will be free and 70,000 copies will be distributed at gay venues
and events throughout the country
around Easter next year. It's going to be in full colour and Haydn says that
already gay advertisers are keen to get involved. "Our aim is not to make a profit,
just cover costs, and every Pride event will have at least two full pages of
editorial devoted to it."
