Stars of tomorrow are Proud2Be

Besi Besemar February 12, 2013


Students of the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama have lent their support to a growing LGBT video campaign by making a video letting the world know they are proud to be who they are.

The Proud2Be video campaign started when identical twin brothers Mat and Jon Price recorded a short video to let the world know they were proud to be gay. Many public figures have followed in the brothers footsteps and recorded similar messages, including Stephen Fry, Peter Tatchell, Christine Burns MBE, Deputy Speaker Nigel Evans MP and Michael Cashman MEP.

The video campaign is part of the Proud2Be Project, a new social enterprise that has already been nominated for a Princes Trust award and a National Diversity Award.

Through the project, Mat and Jon will not only be running the video campaign but also facilitating social groups and workshops, creating documentaries and exhibitions and hosting their their own radio show every Monday at 6pm.
