X Factor finalist Rachel Adedeji

Whilst SuperGay is cancelled this year, promoters Think Pink and their venues Blu and Basement have stepped in to make sure Middlesbrough and the Tees Valley can still have a Gay Pride event to be proud of – headlined by X Factor''s Rachel Adedeji.

Back in May, the SuperGay committee announced that there would not be a festival this year. Directors Simon and Phil of Think Pink, recognising the need for a celebration have plans in place for a 10 hour Pride Party at Blu and Basement on Saturday 10th September. The event comes complete with outdoor dance arena and bar, cabaret throughout the night and a headline performance by X Factor Finalist Rachel Adedeji.

Simon commented, ‘It is a real shame that after 5 years there will be no outdoor festival, however, there is still heightened activity throughout September with an event at MIMA and various community focused activities – we wanted to provide another element of this with a huge Pride Party. All these events provide a call to action; The Middlesbrough and surrounding district Gay Communities need to support these events to show that there is a demand for an Outdoor Gay Pride Festival’ next year.’

‘We have successfully secured a headline act popular with the Gay crowd and hope the event will be as successful as our evening events surrounding Pride last year.’

The event, going ahead with support from WKD will attract over 1000 LGBT revellers into the town from as far afield as Newcastle and Leeds.
