Scotland’s longest running Pride event has announced former X-Factor judge and singer, Tulisa, will headline their 2019 festival event in the capital city.
Pride Edinburgh returns on Saturday 22nd June and revealed today that Tulisa will take to the main stage as part of her comeback, performing her new single “Daddy”.
Organisers have chosen the theme “This is me” for 2019, in a year marking 50 years since the Stonewall uprising in New York City, widely seen as the moment that started the Pride movement around the world.
A colourful march through the city will end at Bristo Square, with a range of community stalls, food and drink, plus live entertainment on the Manchester Airport Los Angeles Stage.
Tulisa will be joined by other artists such as Blaze, Marcello Spooks, Jordy, James Hughes, Mary Mac, Sam Callahan and Caitlyn Vanbeck.
