ONCE UPON A TIME CLOTHING FOR LONDON PRIDE
...The colours that are in right now & our take on what to wear this weekend...
5 WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT & CELEBRATE LONDON PRIDE
1. Rainbow Baking
As your pre-parade breakfast or just an activity to celebrate pride, it's time to try your hand at creating one of those rainbow cakes you’ve been seeing all over Instagram. Follow @wendykou for the latest baking tricks and all you need to know about the latest trendy treats. Or if you aren't the best baker in the world you can pop down to your local M&S Store to buy one (we won't tell, don't worry!)
We just want everyone to eat cake and be happy just like this poor girl from the Mean Girls movie.

2. Drag Queen Brunches
The Ivy Soho Brasserie is set to host one of many Drag Queen brunches in London this weekend, presented by British drag queen Tiffaney Wells. If you can’t make it, you should still pay The Ivy a visit to try their exclusive pride-inspired cocktail and dessert ‘Pride of Soho’ or if anything use it as another excuse to dress up, get out and celebrate pride this weekend! What could be better?!?
3. LGBTQ+ theatre. THE PENETRATION PLAY
Typically, a night at the gay theatre Above the Stag is all about boys, but just for pride they've made a rare foray known as The Penetration Play into a lesbian drama with American playwright Winter Miller's dark comedy. It follows three women, a lesbian who's in love with her best friend, and her best friend's mother - which will surely will make for a fun cultural night out in London this Pride week.
