Gay Star News is celebrating the end of Pride month with a special takeover of Pride in London pop-up shop.

We took to Soho today 30 June to hand out 5,000 amazing Gay Star News Pride goodie bags. Also, did we mention they’re free?

Furthermore, the Pink Lady dancers provided some lively, colorful entertainment with their samba dancers. Brazilian traditional tunes and Carioca feathers took the street and invited everyone in the area to join the fun.

The bags

Designed by Turkish artist Sadi Guran, Gay Star News Pride tote bags will complement your Pride outfit, whatever it will be on the big day.

Gay Star News has partnered with our Prides & Festivals section’s sponsor Skittles, alongside Manchester United, Pink Lady, ClarinsMen, Jet2holidays, Staples, Age UK, Soopa Doopa, Npower, Hoseasons, and, to bring you the perfect to-go bag.

It contains nearly everything you need to survive a Saturday in Soho. A packet of Skittles, sweet potato crisps, a juicy apple plus special Pride-themed gadgets to get you prepped for next week.

And while you’re at it, take a look at the shop and its rainbow merchandise. Caps, mugs, wristbands, t-shirts… you name it, they have it.
