Its About People & Bringing People Together

Pride Rewind Closing Q&A and Reflection

The closing of Pride Rewind 2020 with an explanation of the “empty chair” that is included at every Plymouth Pride Festival and reserved for our absent friends. This video also has a very special reflection from David Green remembering a particularly traumatic time in Plymouth’s history for the LGBTQ communities but with an eye to the future. After watching this video please take 2 minutes to quietly remember those we have lost and reflect on how far we have come in such a short time of only 25 years.


Flags Flying – Living with HIV – Poetry
