Pride Bristol held their drag race today, Saturday 26 June, and I was lucky enough to catch a colourful glimpse of them on their way through St Nicholas Market.
About 30 people set off at 13:30 from the Palace Hotel at Old Market, they then crossed through Cabot Circus before getting to where we were. They were last seen making their way down Corn St and heading into a bar opposite Stanford book shop. The race finishes at the Pineapple and all registered contestants receive a certificate and medal. The winner will be the Drag who completes the course in the quickest time and also raises the most money.
Everyone taking part seemed in quite a festive mood and the only rush was for the ones at the back to try to keep up.
