For the first time in its nine year history, Norwich Pride will have a youth section of the parade on July 29 and is pleased to welcome Ruth Hunt, the Chief Executive of Stonewall, to launch the youth parade.

Nick O'Brien from Norwich Pride said: 'Norwich Pride is looking forward to more LGBT+ young people, allies, and their teachers taking part in our parade; helping us to turn Norwich into a rainbow.'

Youth and school groups will be meeting before the parade for brief talks from Ruth Hunt and Tony Fenwick MBE, co-chair of LGBT History Month. If you are involved with a school or youth group that would like to join in, please contact Norwich Pride through their Facebook page or email info@norwichpride.org.uk

Ruth will be joining the Question Time panel in the Community Tent, Chapelfield Gardens alongside Asifa Lahore the UK's first out Muslim drag queen, Alex Causton-Ronaldson a campaigner for the Terrence Higgins Trust, Lady Phyll from UK Black Pride, and Katy-Jon Went a trans activist and writer.
