Humanity needs more people who see the world through the same eyes, the same clarity of vision that author and playwright J.M. Barrie did when he created the characters of Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Wendy Darling and Tinker Bell, perhaps then it might not be so centred on greed and destruction. Instead, as is always hoped for at this time of year, the pull of being decent, of holding out a hand to a fallen lost boy or fellow darling, is the right way to be. It is an ideal, of being brave in a world of adults, cutlasses and poison, of listening to your heart, of believing and one that Peter Pan flies high.

Rain has a habit of getting in the way of the most superb of days, like a badly bruised apple can spoil a bag of tempting fruit; it can annoy and ruin any specific moment in which fun and reflection is the order of the day, yet it couldn’t destroy the party that was Liverpool Pride 2014.
