Notts Pride, July 28, 2018
Stop the presses! Notts Trans Hub will be going large and marching at this year’s Notts Pride en masse with our banner – it’s really crucial we are visible at this tricky time, and we invite all trans people, family, allies and friends to come march with us. It’s our march too and we will keep people safe and not engage with hate but leave that to cis allies who have prepared to do this.
Notts Pride have made a statement following events at London Pride.
We also have some info about GRA reforms to hand out to people. Come gather near Hotel Chocolat at 10.50 or find our banner in the parade. It looks like this:
Sometime after the march, we’ll be going along to the Big Queer Picnic, so join us there from 2pm if it’s not raining.
