Portsmouth MP marches alongside Pride crowd

PORTSMOUTH South MP Stephen Morgan believes that the ‘diversity and passion’ shown at this year’s Portsmouth Pride is one of the city’s great qualities.

The MP helped lead the parade from the Coffee Cup in Eastney to the Bandstand on Saturday.

Mr Morgan said: ‘Pride truly is the word, I am incredibly proud that Portsmouth has hosted our biggest ever city-wide celebration of LGBTQ+ people here in Pompey and across the globe.

‘The diversity and passion of our city is the key to its strength. If any place knows that love is love, it’s Portsmouth.

‘The team of volunteers behind it all have done our city proud and I’d like to thank them for all of their hard work towards making today the success that it was.’
