On 20th June the Reel Youth Media team accompanied a group of young performers to take part in an open mic session at Pride Youthspace @ Potterow…. we took a camera along.
The event was a huge success for LGBT Youth with lots of young people taking part in allsorts of activities and there was a real sense of celebration in the air. The Open Mic stage featured several performers who we’ve known for quite some time… and others who we hadn’t seen in quite a while so it was great catching up.
With several of the performers also taking part in the Totally Sound Showcase later that evening, it was a perfect opportunity for a warm up performance to a very friendly and supportive crowd.
We had a really fun afternoon at Pride Youthspace and the performers all remarked on the vibrancy and energy about the event. We certainly hope we can be along again next year and would like to thank Nigel Chipps and all the splendid young people who made the event possible!
