The 2 Days In Pictures

 

Pride in London 2022

Along with the 2 day course the participants where asked to come and join Gaydio to help with our street team and be in the parade for the day. Gaydio were gold media sponsors for 2022 and an amazing oppetunity to get the participants really involved in the day with the whole team, getting involved with social media and being a representive of Gaydio. Take a look at some of the pictues below.

 

 

WHAT THE STUDENTS THOUGHT

  • It was really great to meet everyone and try out some new things. I spoke about it at length in an interview with a perspective university who loved what I did with the Gaydio Academy and wanted to know more. Aced the interview and they then gave me a unconditional offer on the spot! So I’ll be on the broadcast journalism masters at City Uni from September! Thanks again!
