The Pride Shelter Trust was out in force earlier today at Cape Town Pride. We marched proudly through the CBD with our new banner, collecting money and raising awareness about what we do. We then headed back to De Waterkant, where we engaged with many Pride partygoers at our stall near Crew. All in all, a fantastic day!
Yesterday evening, Ian McMahon, Chair of the Board of the Pride Shelter Trust, spoke at the latest Conversations event, which was held at OYO Restaurant & Cocktail Bar at the V&A Waterfront.
Conversations, launched in October 2013, is a monthly networking and social event for the LGBTI community in Cape Town.
Standing in front of our brand new banner, Ian gave the guests a great insight into the history of the Trust and the work of the Pride Shelter. He ended by calling on people to get involved in helping us to support LGBTI people in crisis.
Thanks to Conversations (www.facebook.com/conversationsza) for giving us this platform to raise awareness.
