Celebrating Channel Islands Pride with Twayna Mayne
The magic of Pride celebrations lies not just in the bright and vibrant parades, but also in the powerful voices that resonate with the cause and bring forth thought-provoking dialogues. This year at the Channel Islands Pride, audiences had the incredible opportunity to experience this magic firsthand, thanks to the awe-inspiring Twayna Mayne.
For those unfamiliar with Channel Islands Pride, this annual event is a spirited celebration of the LGBTQIA+ community across the Channel Islands. Every year, one of the islands plays host, and this year, it was the scenic Jersey’s turn. You can discover more about this wonderful event at their official website.
Twayna Mayne, a passionate advocate for both the LGBTQIA+ and Black and mixed communities, was the perfect choice to open the Pride celebrations. With a keynote speech that deeply resonated with attendees, she emphasised the importance of Pride and the intersectionality of lived experiences of queerness and blackness. It was a speech that touched hearts and inspired many to continue the fight for equality. Later, she lit up the Pride after party with her stand-up comedy set, spreading laughter and joy in her unique style.
Our client from the Channel Islands Pride couldn’t be more pleased with the experience. They shared:
“Twayna Mayne was an absolute delight to work with. As Pride organisers, we appreciate it when our guests want to join the Pride march and take an interest in our local politics. Twayna not only did this, but her keynote speech on the main stage hit all the right notes for where we are right now in terms of equality for our LGBTQ+ and Black and mixed communities. We would love to work with Twayna again, please!”
