Being involved in organising Crawley Pride and experiencing the weekend as someone who has grown up in Crawley was an amazing experience.
Feeling comfortable enough to lead the ‘Sanctuary’ for other Trans people to hang out in, somewhere to relax and chill out, was a big personal accomplishment.
To feel safe, included, and a part of the community is something I will never forget.
As a trans person, I face enough struggles and difficulties as it is, but Crawley Pride encouraged me to stand tall and always be myself.
