A small group of first-time event organisers are planning to literally put the Pride into Banbury this summer. Banbury Pride, a LGBT community group is in the early stages of organising the town’s first ever Pride event pencilled in for Saturday, July 13. The group, which was formed in September, is aiming for an inaugural town centre event with a Brazilian theme. Chair Amie Dolton said: “There’s myself and another lady called Claire, she’s the one that initially said Banbury needs a Pride. We were meeting once a month but we are now meeting every two weeks trying to get it organised. “The theme is in response to treatment of the LGBT community in Brazil by the new president.
