BourneFree 2017

Last weekend we had a hugely successful return to Bournemouth’s LGBTI Pride event, BourneFree.  As in previous years we were in the Gardens with our stall from about 8.00am until 4.30pm. We also took part in the parade through Bournemouth. As you can see from the photo, our stall was a bit better than previous years as we now have two bright yellow banners to help publicise ourselves.

We also had much better supply of materials from AIUK, although we ran out of the Pride stickers by lunch time. But we got around 150 postcards signed campaigning against the abduction and killing of gay men in Chechnya. As you can see from the photograph we used some of our Marsh award money to have two selfie frames created.  These proved quite successful as most people were quite happy to be photographed in the frame – either by us or with their own cameras.  We have put about 50 photographs on our facebook page, if you’d like to check them out. But we’ve put a sample on the video above.
