Medway's first Pride festival has been cancelled due to lack of funding.
Just £210 was raised of a target of £21,333.
A parade through Rochester, live performances and collaborations with local businesses were all plans which sadly, are no longer going ahead.
One of the organisers said: "I can’t describe how I feel as I am overwhelmed by the fact the event is actually happening.
“I have had a few knock backs from members of the public, saying that it’s never going to happen and it’s not going to work, but I didn’t let that stop me from carrying on."
Sunday, August 25
To make Swale Pride happen, the committee needs more support from volunteers to help with a parade, stalls, advertising and more.

"We are yet to announce the date for the 2020 event, which will be bigger and better than our plans for this year."
