Durban Pride

Durban was a blaze of colour today as Pride took to the streets around the new Stadium with a march to the beachfront.

Thanks to Ezra who looked magnificent in the bright pink feather creation promting "I am Gay" for marketing and helping oganise.

Many don't realise but Pride is still critical in promoting awareness of those, particularly in Africa, who do not enjoy freedom or equality under the law.
