Highland Perthshire Actor to Host Perthshire Pride

Aberfeldy born Hollywood star Alan Cumming will be hosting the Perthshire Pride celebrations as the event returns after a Covid enforced absence.

Mr Cummings who has stared in blockbuster movies including Goldeneye, X2 (X-Men 2), Garfield, Son of the Mask, Smurfs and Smurfs 2 as well as appearances in Taggart, The Good Wife, Doctor Who and The Simpsons, was the host of an online event in 2020 after the Covid forced the cancellation.

Perthshire Pride Chairperson Dougie Scott shared his reaction to Alan hosting this year saying: “We’re honestly so delighted that Alan Cumming will be coming down to Perthshire Pride to lead the march and open the festival. He’s been a great supporter of the LGBT community as well as Perthshire. As a local boy himself we are over the moon that he will be joining us during the day.”

Perthshire Pride will take place on the Weekend of the 13th and 14th of August beginning with the March on the 13th from 11am until 12pm starting at the South Inch and heading to the Mill Street Plaza for the Main event which runs until 6pm.

An After party will be held at The Bank from 7pm, with a Bruch in the Yard even at The Yard on the 14th.
