Bradford’s gay and lesbian entrepreneurs will pitch for 300 pink pounds at Pride event, Drag-on’s Den.

Hosted by renowned female impersonator, Miss Marigold Adams, Drag-on’s Den, based on the BBC TV show, will see budding business people pitching their ideas to a panel of Bradford’s business luminaries.

The contestant who gives the best two-minute presentation will walk away with a £300 contribution towards a training course.

“Its all about supporting new gay businesses” says Mark Moorhouse, who owns gay club Candy, the venue for the event.

“Already there have been lots of brilliant plans submitted and it will be a very exciting competition highlighting the great enthusiasm of the many lesbian and gay entrepreneurs in Bradford.”

Drag-on’s Den is part of a set of events marking the second annual Bradford Pride, including an Enterprise fair on 6th September, with support for people who want to start businesses, information about development grants and training.

There will be music from the Gay Abandon choir, a Pink Market and readings by Narvel Annable, V G Lee and Linda Innes.

Bradford Pride, which runs from September 6 until September 9, includes a Bradford premiere of the Sundance and Cannes nominated short film Private Lives filmed in Bradford; an 80′s Pride extravaganza; and a Pride lunch.

Drag-on’s Den is on Saturday 8th August, from 8pm at Candy, Sackville Street, Bradford.
