Pride People: Pam Ann @ Manchester Pride 2011

By Amy Senior & Emma Arnold

A firm favourite at Manchester pride, Pam Ann – the feisty air hostess – flew in to the North West especially to celebrate Pride’s 21st birthday.

Described as ‘cruelly funny’, she combines 1960’s glamour as a ‘trolley dolly’ with camp, brash comedy.

Pam Ann, the alter-ego of Australian comedienne Caroline Reid, gives us her ‘thoughts’ on the festival following her performance on the first night of Manchester Pride 2011.

A bunch of gays on mass in one place all looking for c**k

What were you looking forward to most at Manchester’s 21st Pride Festival?
