“I am proud to be a patron of Proud2Be. The best weapon against prejudice is openness; every person who is open about who he or she is and who he or she loves breaks the collective closet that has for so long immured LGBTQ people. That expands our ability to live our lives fully, to marry whom we wish, and to experience joy.” – Andrew Solomon

“I’m happy to support such an inspiring LGBT organisation led by a dynamic duo!” – Michael Cashman CBE

“Everyone in Totnes was super-friendly- before, during and after Totnes Pride! I had a brilliant time and I’ll definitely be back!” – Jacq Applebee
