Join Hands, Be Proud

Pride Month (June)

We want to create a video to celebrate Pride Month and we need your help! 

Join us in celebrating gender identity and sexual orientation diversity by taking part in our virtual 'hand holding' challenge. Our town has come a long way in improving inclusion and belonging, but there is still work to be done.

The aim is to create a virtual circle of pride with as many people as possible and show that everyone is welcome in St Helens - regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion or disability. We are #StHelensTogether #BetterThanThat #NoPlace4H8

The video will be used to celebrate pride month on our social media accounts and we would love for YOU to be a part of it - you never know whose virtual hand you may hold!

Here's how it's done....


Your Video

  • Dress to express yourself (think Pride/ rainbows/ celebrations – or not this is your video! Do you, your way!)
  • Needs to last about five seconds (no more than 10MB)
  • Hold out your right hand
  • Offer out your left hand
  • Give us a smile, a nod or cheer
  • There should be one person in the shot
  • Make sure your video is filmed vertically.
  • That’s it, send it into us by completing the video upload form below and we will add you to our camera roll.
