The week in pictures

In parading, On Saturday 6 July, Aidy Smith, Helena Nicklin and Colin Hampden-white are teaming up with wine brand Barefoot to celebrate Ptide.

They’ve pledged to don rainbow tutus and angel wings alongside a team from wine brand Barefoot at the celebration in London, all the while will film a variety of videos interacting with the crowds to spread a message of inclusion and love.

The Three Drinkers will be on Barefoot’s float at Pride in London this weekend (which, if you’re heading down to the parade, will get moving at around 3:40pm on Saturday), and Smith told us why supporting the cause is so close to his heart.

“I walked my first pride parade in 2011 in San Francisco, surrounded by drag queens, leather and more glitter than I’ve ever seen,” he said.

“Helping me find the courage to accept who I was, it was my best friend who had organised the walk, a man who over the years was a vital voice for LGBTQ+ and raised £100,000’s for charities. Two years ago, our dear JP Leddy passed away – so now I take his baton and stride forward, to give confidence and courage to all those others who so desperately need it. I speak on behalf of everyone when I tell you, you are not alone.”

He continues “We are honored to support Pride and everything it stands for alongside our friends at Barefoot and I’m incredibly proud and overjoyed that my fellow two Drinkers will be right there beside me.”

Smith left us with this image: “You never know. We may even see Colin in some spandex…”
