Michelle Savage, Norwich Pride Trustee and Communications Lead, said: “We were delighted to see the rainbow flag flying in people’s houses, shops, bars and theatres. We were overwhelmed to get a message of support from the Brazilian Canaries supporters group - that was really special.

“Of course we missed being all together but we achieved our dream of connecting LGBT+ people and creating a really happy, safe online space where people had a real sense of community and belonging.
