Goths march through city

Have your say

GOTHS are organising a parade through Sheffield city centre to raise awareness of abuse and discrimination they say they suffer because they dress differently.

The event is on Saturday and involves a march from Devonshire Green, setting off at noon, through Fargate to the Cathedral and back, via the Peace Gardens.

Organiser Alicia Philpotts said: “The march will be called The Celebration of Diversity as that’s what we’re all about.

“In this day and age, where people are treated equally, it is a shame that this has to be done. We just feel that maybe it’s our job to step forward and show the world we’re just flamboyant and a little different.”
