It's all about love, diversity and inclusivity. 

The wait is nearly over, the second-ever King's Lynn pride is just a few days away. 

2018 saw around 2,000 people turn out for the first Pride West Norfolk had ever seen.

 

The King's Lynn Pride committee want to make the 2019 event bigger and better than ever.

We spoke to Jo Rust about what it means for those in the LGBT community.

"It's about ensuring that every member of our community knows that they're welcome.

That they have a place.

That there are others out there visible, loud and proud that they can look to."


Frances explained why this year is extra important:

"It's really poignant this year as well because it's the 50 year celebration of the Stonewall Riots.

That is what led to the modern LGBT movement.

And it's just a way of spreading that message of love."

The 2018 Pride event had a big effect on some people as Jo told us:

"With the Pride Parade you have thousands of people taking to the streets.

Afterwards, we had a number of people come up to the organisers to say that event gave them the confidence to come out."


King's Lynn Pride 2019 is this Saturday the (17th August).

The Parade starts on Tuesday Market Place at 12pm and ends with a party in the Walks.

KLFM's own Ben Norris will be there helping us get in the mood with some tunes.
