We are delighted to announce the launch of our ‘Spirit of Pride’ talk series, in celebration of Pride 2019.
The talk series, hosted in partnership with Gay Times, will take place in The Blake Room at The Ivy Soho Brasserie with each talk will featuring an exclusive guest.
Touching upon the themes of music, fashion and movement, each ticketed talk will be hosted by Gay Times CEO, Tag Warner, and held in conversation with UK talent who will be offering personal and inspirational stories whilst reflecting on the evolution of Pride.
Kicking off the series on Wednesday, 3 July, will be fashion designer Henry Holland. Recently celebrating its 10th year, House of Holland is firmly established in the international fashion arena. On Tuesday, 9 July, the special guest will be Paris Lees, a writer, broadcaster and passionate campaigner for better media representation of the transgender community.
