Pride in London 2017 with Intermedia UK

This year, I celebrated Pride in London with the team at Intermedia UK and a host of celebrities from Emmerdale, Coronation Street, Hollyoaks and more.

Jonni Learoyd at Channel 4 kindly asked me to DJ with Nova Dando as part of the Pride Parade, which started at London’s Portland Place, before taking in Regent Street, Oxford Circus and The Mall on its travels, before finishing a few hours later at Whitehall.

InterMediaUK was set up by Creative Skillset’s LGBT employee group and Stonewall in 2012. It is an LGBT network group for people working across the media spectrum. Currently there are members from TV, film, publishing, advertising and computing.

Many LGBT people don’t have employee or freelance networks to connect with and some creative companies can be relatively small. Both these things mean networking with LGBT colleagues and contacts can be sometimes be difficult. Creative industries can be an LGBT friendly place but in these fast moving and influential businesses it can sometimes be challenging to find like minded people to connect with.

Based on the interests of its members, InterMediaUK provides a comfortable space for networking, forming new professional contacts, sourcing potential career and business opportunities as well as creating regular social and special events.

Check out my video, which I produced on the day, below.
