We had a nice time at Pride, even if it wasn't as sunny as it might have been. I think it was probably the biggest ever Brighton Pride – the park seemed very crowded, and we were very glad of the foresight of our friends in Rainbow Families who had arranged for our stall to have a small enclosed space with a toilet in it. We were the envy of everyone in the park and had to keep turning people away who wanted to pay money for a toilet with a smaller queue!
We walked in the parade with Allie's mum, after watching the spectacular floats.
Our t-shirts were generally admired.
P. spent a lot of the day picking up feathers from the ground, and when we got home began work on a Sylvanian Pride. So far there's only one head-dress, stall and leaflet made, but she's planning a more extensive tableau.
For P. and L. the excitement of Pride was immediately eclipsed by today's expedition to fetch our new guinea pigs, Bunny
We spent the afternoon shopping for more guinea pig supplies (A. and L.) and working on a guinea pig care rota and handbook (P. and D.) and the evening cuddling the piggies and letting them explore their run on the kitchen floor.
Bunny seems to be the braver and more dominant one, always making it to the food bowl first. But Hank has the funkier hairstyle!
