This August, we’re asking Scots “What does Pride mean to you?”
We know lots of people love to come together and express themselves freely and openly during Pride season and that’s great. For some it’s the only time of year that they do. But some argue we should all be able to do this any day of the week. If we really advocate true equality, then do we need a Pride event atall?
We want to hear what Pride means to you – whether you love the big festivals with live acts, singers, stalls and a special headline act. Or maybe you prefer the parade, marching in solidarity with your fellow LGBT+ community? How about a small community gathering or a loud and proud protest march to demand fair treatment and equal rights?
As Scotland boasts more and more Pride marches around the country (Pride Edinburgh, Pride Glasgow, Pride Alloa, West Lothian Pride & East Lothian Pride that we know of) we want to hear what makes Pride a special event for you.
Maybe 2016 will be your first experience of Pride? Or you have fond memories of Pride from many years ago and have witnessed them change over those years. Maybe you met your partner at a Pride event. Let us know, we’d love to hear your stories.
Take part by sending your own short video messages to us now. We’ll collate them into one short film by the end of the summer and let the world know how Scotland feels about Pride!
Just send your video clips to: firstname.lastname@example.org by August 26th.
Clips should be in landscape format, where possible in HD and a simple head & shoulder shot. Please provide your name and the town you live in with your email so we can say thanks and credit you in the film.
Clips should be no longer than 60secs long.
