1 reason you're involved with Yeovil Pride
As a straight father who has built a career in Public Relations, Marketing and Events, I have two vested interested in supporting the LGBT+ community.

Firstly, to use my experience and skills to support Yeovil Pride and help it to grow, and secondly to ensure my children grow up in a society where equality, acceptance and Inclusivity isn’t something that needs to be campaigned for. Unfortunately we are not there yet and until we are I believe we all have a responsibility to do what we can and set an example to those around us.
