Just occasionally I receive bile on my social media platforms that tries to denigrate Stoke-on-Trent. That tries to paint the picture of our city that no-one recognises. I don't think there could have been any more striking example of what an inclusive city we are than the wonderful Stoke Pride that happened over the weekend.
A day filled full of fun and laughter and every part of our diverse communities involved standing in solidarity with the LGBTQ community. A huge thank you to everyone who helped organise the events, the countless organisations who came and the wonderful members of the public who make the 12th Stoke Pride one of the biggest and best yet!
See you next year!
