Several YouTubers are due to attend the thirteenth annual National Student Pride festival.
Over the course of this weekend (February 9 to 11), YouTubers including Riyadh Khalaf, Laura Lu, Roly West, Fox Fisher, Ellen Stephenson, Olly Pike, Ben Hunte and Jack Lewis from OurSwirlLife, Saskia and Lily, Doug Armstrong, and many others will be attending the National Student Pride event in London.
The weekend-long event will have ticketed evening events held at G-A-Y, as well as a free daytime festival on Saturday at Westminster University and a “queer bus tour of London” on Sunday.
This is National Student Pride’s thirteenth annual event, with over 1700 LGBT+ students expected to attend and join in with the event throughout the weekend.
During Saturday’s festival, National Student Pride will also be home to its first ever “doggo play area”, where there will be an opportunity for anyone to attend, cuddle some dogs, and talk to LGBT+ YouTubers.
