If you attended this year’s Isle of Wight Pride, which included UKPride 2018, you might have noticed a film crew capturing footage of the parade and interviews in the main arens.

The fruits of their labour can be seen on Monday 17th September (7.30pm) on BBC1’s Inside Out programme.

The segment was commissioned by Solent Productions working with Solent University students, and will provide a unique insight into UKPride2018.

What to expect
You’ll be able to “find out first hand from prominent members of the LGBT+ community on the Island exactly what Pride means to a small community, the impact it has had and the incredible work that went into hosting UKPride”.

Producer Tony Steyger says,

“This project was important to put the record straight about how the Island, my home, has become a far more tolerant place, largely through the efforts of ordinary people. If that transformation can happen here, it can happen anywhere.”

Don’t miss it!
