In case you all don’t know, I’m Dee from the street and I’m pleased to meet all you Street Cred readers.
This is my 1st official column, so its probably going to be all over the place, but that’s how I am, all over the place.
I am so honoured to even be asked to write a column, and I hope to bring you news about what’s happening in my life, and about new amazing talented young people that I have had the pleasure to meet, and also about some issues that I hold very close to my heart.
Firstly my weekend consisted of attending Birmingham Pride, which I have been going to since Caitlin was in a pushchair and Mom was on her scooter, knocking everyone out of the way bless her. For obvious reasons, this year was a whole lot different to every other year I’ve gone.
Birmingham Pride has been going for 18yrs and I’ve been going for 16 of them. Its a celebration of gay and lesbian rights and people from all over the country attend, whether they are gay, straight, black, white, asian or of any other denomination.
They definitely know how to throw a party, and they do it in style. It definitely didn’t rain on the Birmingham Pride parade.
I didn’t realise that so many people would recognise me, want a picture taken with me and Caitlin, ask where Gerrard was.
I can honestly say I must have had over 1000 pictures taken with some of the nicest people you could wish to meet.
At the end of the day we all bleed the same colour, and Birmingham Pride showed the world how its done brummie style.
We cant wait for next year, where its guaranteed to be bigger and better, and for the record Caitlin’s favourite moment was meeting Conor Maynard and Katy B and mine was the amazing Angie Brown.
