THE streets were buzzing on Saturday as revellers took to the city centre to celebrate the 30th annual Belfast Pride. While the traditional parade couldn’t take because of Covid rules, the event was marked with a virtual celebration. That didn’t stop people going out to the likes of the Smithfield and Union quarter, which has a long association with the LGBT community. Among those sending their best wishes was Constable Paul Bloomer, co-chair of the PSNI LGBT staff support network. “There are lots of important reasons why police participate in Pride, but the personal reasons are also important,” he said.
