THE PRIDE PARADE received many helping hands this year from private and public stakeholders, and more lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies participated.

This is according to coordinator Ro-Ann Mohammed, who said there was a lot less anxiety this time around.

“People are much more at ease because last year we were going into the unknown. But this year there is an atmosphere of jubilation.

“And there were no difficulties this year. Thankfully everything went smoothly, the police cooperated fully and we had the support of a lot of different stakeholders so we are very happy with the way it went.”

The event, which started at 4 p.m., saw participants waving rainbow flags and signs with messages about equality.(TG) Subscribe now to our eNATION edition for the full story.For the latest stories and breaking news updates download the Nationnews apps for iOS and Android.
