Most of us will never encounter anyone really dodgy when online dating. And by ‘really dodgy’ we mean more than just having terrible dating photos or a bad taste in jumpers.

Last weekend I headed off to the London Gay Pride Festival in central London with my boyfriend, niece and camera along with 26,000 other people and had the best day. It was fantastic to see so many people celebrating and showing support to the LGBT+ community. The feeling of being there and sharing the experience with so many like-minded people was immense.
And it’s fantastic to see so many companies showing their support this year. My favourite came from Skittles who lost their rainbow for Pride Month.
