Pride icon hosting at Hovertravel for Isle of Wight Pride
Award winning drag persona Miss Jason will be strutting her stuff and entertaining the crowds at Hovertravel’s Southsea terminal on Saturday 20th July.
Miss Jason says: “I love a meet and greet and what better way to extend a warm welcome to all those people crossing the Solent for the infamous Isle of Wight Pride than having me posing on the pad. I shall smile for the selfies, wave off every flight and bring some extra colour to Hovertravel’s operation.”Appearing exclusively at the Southsea terminal, Miss Jason will be hosting customers for hovercraft flights to Ryde from Southsea starting from 10am to 1pm.
This year’s Isle of Pride begins at noon with an exuberantly colourful parade starting from Queens Road in Ryde, flowing down West Street before making its way through the town down Union Street to the sea front and along Ryde Esplanade. The parade will finish around the Superbowl, next to Hovertravel, where there will be a community village and market.
Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, adds: “Hovertravel is a strong supporter of the vibrant LGBTQ community on the Isle of Wight and beyond. For the last three years our staff have used this event to demonstrate the diversity which exists in our business and raise awareness of the prejudice and violence still faced by this community around the world. We are also helping to bring people to Ryde for this wonderfully inclusive event and thank Miss Jason getting the fun started across the Solent in Southsea.”For more details and information on how to book please visit
