Spice Girls singer Mel C openly supports the LGBT+ community, expressing her support for trans rights while on stage performing in the Brighton Pride.
After dedicating the Spice Girls classic ‘2 Become 1’ to the trans community, the singer wrapped herself with a trans flag during her performance in Brighton’s Pride Pleasure Gardens on August 3rd.
Talking to the crowd she said about the LGBT+ community that “I’ve learned a lot about myself and one of the things I’ve never expected to do was to find more acceptance for every single part of me, so I thank you for that.”
She then continued to say “I’ve been proudly holding the Pride flag everywhere I go, very proudly. But tonight, I’ve been given my one of my dancers, this very special flag, and I’m going to be holding this tonight when I sing my next song.
“This is a flag that we don’t see often enough. This is a flag we want to see a lot more of. This is for trans and non-binary [people].”
She continues, “Every part of the Pride community is very important, so tonight, I’m sharing this. We all need, we all deserve, and we all should have love.”Deeper in her live performance, Mel C invited four drag queens from “Sink the Pink” on stage, filling in for her fellow Spice Girls namely Mel B, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner, and Victoria Beckham.
Speaking previously about her tour Mel C announced that “I’m going on tour with Sink the Pink, the most inclusive, fun and fabulous club night in London and we’re taking their best drag queens around the world, for a truly special show. I can’t wait.”
