Freedom to be me

Newcastle Pride Festival 2014


Together with World Peace Tyneside we asked festival goers at Newcastles Annual Pride Festival for their visions for peace and to make their personal pledge for peace in their community.

Visions for Peace-


1) So that everyone in the world can love who they want, believe what they want without prejudice.

2) Peace is an abstract perfection-

Serenity among all sans colour

Smiles abound and encapsulates time

The brilliance of togetherness like entwined vines

Poverty ceases, all men hear same good cries…

The world’s creeds agree, disagree and let be

The wildlife we see in tune with our hearts

And of course, the environment more alive

3) Hope, Love, Family, Friends, Pride!

4) Peace for Myself

5) No political control, to be free and peaceful

6) Stress free and happy

7) Peace is love for all, happiness and friendship

11) The chance for everyone to believe what they believe without having to worry.

12) Everyone is happy

13) Trying not to argue with my brother as much

14) Peace is a better place to live in, you can’t live in peace with war #anti-war!

15) For people not to judge or assume, get to know and love. As if they don’t understand instead of backing off. Life is life, Love is love, It is all the same no matter what!

16) To live in a happy world, be prejudice free and to love whoever xxx

17) My vision is for a world without discrimination allowing people to not stress.

18) My vision is a world without judgement, discrimination and hate, my wish is equality
