Pride festival season is in full swing now, with lots of events coming up over the next few months and we know that many of you will be attending your first Pride events, so we’ve decided to create an essentials guide just for you so you can be prepared.
A backpack means you can carry everything and have your hands free, so it’s a total win-win situation.
How can you attend pride without a flag?! eBay have some festival-friendly flags and you can get various sexuality-themed ones including bisexual, asexual and transgender if you want to show your pride.
As much as heels look fabulous, they’re pretty uncomfortable to be walking around in all the time. So the best footwear in our opinion is comfortable shoes such as trainers.
As much as you’re having fun and enjoying yourself, you need to keep hydrated. Make sure you have water on you and drink plenty.
The more colour the better. From bracelets to shoe laces, anything goes. Hair chalks are a great way to create a bold look.
Having money is pretty important as there’s a lot of opportunities to spend at Pride. Whether it’s merch, food or anything else – make sure you save in advance so you can ensure you can have a good time.
Whether you plan on having an actual picnic at Pride or just needing somewhere to sit, a picnic blanket is always a good idea.
