Estelle at the Auckland Pride Parade

The 2018 Pride Festival has been host to an array of events over the past couple of weeks, some hindered by the horrid weather unfortunately, but the clouds held themselves together for the big finale on Saturday night down Auckland's Ponsonby Road - The Pride Parade.

Lush were one of the parades main sponsors this year and Estelle caught up with Tim from the Christchurch team ahead of the parade to talk aboutĀ him being one of the cover faces for their #LUSHpride campaign, what he loves about the pride festival and why it's important.

The energy was electric and fun and loud and I felt like it was a celebration just as much for the LGBTIQ community as it was for anyone wanting to come together to celebrate diversity, culture and love. It was also a colour bugs dream!! - EstelleĀ
