Dover burst with vibrant colors as it marked its fourth Pride festival on August 27th, 2022. The event, themed around pop art and pop music, aimed to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community under the banner “POP with pride.”
Supporting the festivities, Dover Town Council helped provide essential assistance at the Roman Lawn venue. The day’s celebrations commenced with a spirited march from the Riverside Community Centre, led by the Mayor of Dover, Cllr Gordon Cowan, and Cllr Trevor Bartlett, the council leader.
As the parade reached its destination, through Market Sqaure and then to the Roman Lawn, a vast crowd gathered to celebrate the festivities at the main stage and Pride Café. The event was made even more memorable by the presence of drag queen hosts, including Miss Di Vour, and stars from Drag SOS, Miss Lilli Berlin, and Poppy Love.
