Queer+ Friends of Chelsea Manning London Pride 2015!

We had yet another super day at London Pride this year, our fifth London Pride. We had two large banners, four placards and managed to hand out over 3,000 flyers during the march and another 1,000 afterwards. We were interviewed by several crews so hopefully we’ll get some needed coverage for Chelsea. We’ll need to head back to the printers before we head off to Trans* Pride Brighton

Thanks so much to all the lovely people who joined us on the day, to all those who have helped to fund our work and Chelsea Manning’s appeal fund.

Our fund-drive finishes on 5th July 2015 and if you’re reading this before that deadline you can donate using our StartJoin crowdfunding page here: https://www.startjoin.com/ChelseaManning

The wonderful pictures you see below were taken by the lovely @MEMSTER1 and if you use any of these images, please provide a link to his Twitter account.
