Singer Will Young was one of the many people sporting Stonewall’s ‘Some people are gay. Get over it!’ message at Lovebox Festival’s special gay-friendly Sunday on 18 July.
As the official charity partner for the day, Stonewall distributed stickers, posters and banners displaying the hard-hitting message and helping Lovebox create an atmosphere of safety and fun for its first ever gay-themed day.
Will Young said: ‘I’m chuffed Lovebox has a gay day this year – there’s such a great vibe and Stonewall is a fab cause.’
Stonewall’s Deputy Fundraising Director Michaela Greene said: ‘We’re delighted Will has added his name to the list of high-profile Stonewall supporters. Thanks to everyone like Will who flew the flag for Stonewall at Lovebox. It was a thrill to see ‘Some people are gay. Get over it!’ branding across Victoria Park.’
Lovebox Sunday was attended by 20,000 people. Performers included Grace Jones and Hot Chip.
