BY SOPHIE GRIFFITHS

DIVA: What’s your favourite Pride memory?
CHAR BAILEY: Standing on stage at the end of UK Black Pride chanting “when we rise” last year. Look at us now.
Best pride event you’ve been to?
UK Black Pride is home for me.
Favourite rainbow item of clothing (bonus points for a picture)?
I did the River Island Pride collection last year and this two piece still gives me LIFE, plus they partnered with Ditch The Label, so all for a good cause.
What are you missing most about physically being at Pride events this year?
The energy, we talk about Pride a lot, it’s a word we use a lot, but when you’re there you really FEEL it.
What can we expect from DIVA Pride?
A celebration of how amazing you are, whilst remembering those who have come before us and recognising that there’s still work to be done, and loads of FUN!
