Way back in August, I joined the “Pups of the South” group for a visit to Brighton Pride. We weren’t walking in the parade, but we did watch a bit of it and have a wander around – as well as some time on the beach and on Brighton Pier.

It was a good day out and the weather was excellent, but there’s not that many photos from it unfortunately, but I’ve shared the few I do have here.

Thanks to everyone that organised the pup group and hope we can do it again!


Birmingham Pride – May 2016

The late May Bank Holiday weekend saw the annual pride festival in Birmingham, and unlike last year, I didn’t need to leave quickly this year which meant I could enjoy more of the day. Birmingham Pride was also the first event after the TV Documentary was shown… which meant it was going to be an interesting day!

Unusually, this time, I joined the Midlands Pups Walking Group and actually walked in the parade this year. While the parade is not as long as London, I was not able to complete as much of it on all 4s as I’d have liked due to the weather being particularly hot. However, it was a good time and people definitely recognised me from the documentary – with people from the crowds recognising me and shouting at me. I did my best to see as many of them as possible.

After the parade, and a quick bit of food and drink we did our usual walk around the actual Event Village… if we’d thought it was hectic and chaotic in the past, that was nothing compared to this year – given people were recognising me from the TV. I could barely walk 20 metres without someone wanting a photo 🙂

As has become semi-traditional, I found the fun fair in the village and had to go on that – fully dressed up of course!
