Saturday June 20th was Portsmouth’s first Gay Pride parade. Thousands turned out to support the city’s LGBT community. Behind the samba band and leading the parade were staff, OPs and pupils from the nursery right through to the sixth form representing PGS Pride – the school’s society which aims to celebrate difference and help every pupil to feel proud of themselves. The PGS contingent were joined by human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell who has done much to fight for LGBT equality around the world. After the parade, the team promoted the great things they do and raised funds for next year’s parade by selling rainbow cakes at the variety show on Southsea Common.
