G Flip will perform a free DJ set at Walk Proud @ Kinselas and share their story as part of their partnership with Johnnie Walker.

They said, “Working alongside some of my closest mates to spread a message of acceptance and positivity has been awesome. It shows the progress being made to uplift queer experiences and celebrate everyone equally. Cheers to that.”

The opening is part Johnnie Walker’s aim to celebrate and promote a more equal understanding of all LGBTQIA+ identities through education, storytelling and performances from proud members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Jodi McLeod, Johnnie Walker Marketing Manager said: “Johnnie Walker has historically championed progress and celebrated those who have the tenacity, courage and resilience to ‘Keep Walking’. Today we’re partnering with pioneers and catalysts of change in the LGBTQIA+ community, supporting and elevating those who lead us all to a more inclusive and accepting society.

Whether you identify with one or multiple identities within the LGBTQIA+ community or are an ally, Walk Proud @ Kinselas is the place to celebrate with pride during this iconic event.”
