September the 5th was the day that Leicester raised their rainbow flags in aid of the city’s Pride festival. The colourful festival happens annually and is always a great celebration that brings people together. The festival provides education on equality and the importance of accepting everyone no matter what their sexuality.
Sam was at Victoria Park showing her support for the LGBT community. She performed many of her hits on stage to an audience waving their rainbow flags with pride. Sam expressed whilst on stage how honoured she was to have been a part of their special day and how important the festivals are for dispelling discrimination.
Sam’s headline performance represented the growth of the festival as year on year more high profile artists perform at the festival to actively promote equality. The festival saw in excess of 10,000 people.
