St Pancras International played host to a performance like no other, as award-winning UK Drag Queens Ophelia Love and Kitty Scott Claus graced the station’s concourse with an energetic performance of popular crowd pleasers, to raise money for LGBTQ charity, METRO.
As a travel hub for revellers coming into the city this weekend to celebrate at the famous London Pride parade; the seriously stunning Queens performed an exciting medley of hits including Somebody to Love’ and ‘Holding Out For A Hero,’ as a buzzing crowd gathered around St Pancras International’s public Elton John piano.
Wendy Spinks, Commercial Director at HS1 Ltd. said, “As an inclusive space, St Pancras is proud to show support of the LGBTQ+ community and raise money for METRO, an equality and diversity charity. We wanted to surprise our visitors with a performance that would get them in the spirit ahead of the Pride celebrations this weekend.”
Pride is an opportunity for members of the LGBTQ+ community to celebrate the freedom to be themselves and METRO plays an important part in supporting the community by promoting diversity and equality. Established in 1984, the charity provides health, community and youth services across London and the South East, supporting people experiencing issues around sexuality, gender, equality, diversity and identity.
Dr Greg Ussher, CEO at METRO Charity said, “We are delighted to help welcome Pride revellers, LGBTQ activists and everyone arriving into London at St Pancras International this morning.
Pride is key to much of the work we do, as well as being enjoyed by so many of our service users, the focus it brings is an important opportunity for METRO to highlight our service offering across our five domains: Sexual & Reproductive Health, Community, Mental Health & Well-being, Youth and HIV.”
