Pride parade deserves our full backing
THIS year's Belfast Pride parade suffered from the dramatic change in our summer weather, but the rain did not dampen the enthusiasm, the fun and, we should note, the significant economic benefit to city centre traders.
If it were widely promoted as a main tourist event, it would bring even more significant social and economic benefit to Belfast.
It's time for us all to take pride in Pride.
