#Trending in the UK: Pride

This year marks 50 years since the first UK Pride event. To celebrate Pride’s 50th anniversary The Royal Mint UK revealed a rainbow 50 pence coin designed by LGBTQ+ activist Dominique Holmes. In honour of Pride we want to feature some outstanding queer UK creators that have been inspiring us.
