Laura - what my partner means to me...
Laura is a lesbian who is going out with some who is trans, they have been together for two years. Both will be attending Northern Pride this year. Laura says the best thing about being with her partner is seeing her get happier and happier as time gets on.
Laura has been to pride before, she can’t wait for this year, she said the best thing is meeting new people, being with all her friends and getting involved with the march.
Laura loves going down the pink triangle because she says the atmosphere is so amazing and is a judgement free zone.
