We are proud to present our Pride charity single for 2020:
Don't Rain On My Parade
Pride 2020 is very different this year due to the ongoing public health pandemic, so as we can't celebrate and perform together, we're releasing our Pride single, recorded in isolation from everyone's home in lockdown.
This is not a time to be silent - our LGBTQ+ community must stand together in solidarity, louder and stronger than ever. So in that spirit - don't rain on our parade!
All profits from this single will be donated to charities Stonewall and Mermaids, who work tirelessly for LGBTQ+ equality and supporting trans and gender-diverse children.
