Speaking of Pride

Speaking of Pride

Nowhere are the values of Pride better emphasised than in Speaking of Pride, which was once again empowered by Bentley; part of the Attitude Pride at Home Digital Festival which ran from 9-19 June 2021. The concept is simple yet powerful: LGBTQ stars deliver a famous piece of prose in the backseat of a Bentley Flying Spur - be it a poem, a letter, a book extract or even song lyrics - that is special to them. Bentley's very own Body & Trim Engineer, and BeProud Network Co-Chair, Tom Dawes recites a piece from Simon vs The Homosapiens Agenda made famous in the 2018 film Love, Simon.
