Supersonic Manchester Pride 2014

12 Apr

I’ve come over all eighty-year-old because I quite literally cannot believe that the last Supersonic was a whole year ago. An entire year since I thought I was going to be sick from nerves as I interviewed the Feeling aboard the Concorde, and since Shannon and I danced all night with our temporary GBF’s.

Last night was extremely surreal as everything was so exactly the same as last year. Everything except the presence of The Feeling (sorely missed). Even the meal was pretty much identical.

This year though, I actually paid attention to the raffle and I cannot quite believe the money that was thrown around. Two tickets to see Kylie Minogue (Gay Cliche or what?) went for £400. That’s a whole month of rent and bills. A tour of Coronation Street went for £950 (A Celine bag). And a private box of fourteen to see tongue-Queen Miley Cyrus went for £2,700 (two pairs of Burberry leather pants and a dachshund in a Marc Jacobs purse). Bloody crazy money.

Despite the feeling of being embarrassingly poor, again I have to say that Manchester Pride is the happiest place on Earth.
