Proud of my boy, Proud of Leeds, Proud of O2

I’ve always loved Pride and spent many happy times at Manchester Pride when I lived there but its never something I would have ever thought about doing with my young family. So when I was invited, along with my 5 year old son, to come on the O2 float I jumped at the chance. Oscar (that’s him there) invited his little ‘girlfriend’ Ruby and her mum to come with us. Meeting beforehand it was difficult to tell who was more excited – the kids or the mums!

There was a real sense of excitement in the air in Leeds. It didn’t feel scary or threatening. Actually the best word I can think of is Welcoming. Oscar was making friends with everyone he saw; telling them that he was going to be on the O2 bus and promising to wave at them!!

Once we had got on the bus and got ourselves kitted out in garlands, scarves, hats and as much rainbow paraphernalia as we possibly could, then it was time for makeup! We went for a rainbow glitter curve on our face….always got to keep with the brand!

It was such a special hour. Oscar and Ruby literally had the time of their lives  – shooting the confetti guns, spraying out bubbles and eating copious amounts of sweets.

Thank you to the team who did a fantastic job. I will definitely be signing the Evans family up for next year xx
