11 August 2019 NEWS
IAN McKellen stunned fans today as he showed up to lead today’s Perthshire Pride parade.
The legendary actor, 80, was front and centre as thousands flocked to the vibrant march.
He was more than happy to pose for pics with fans as he donned a colourful shirt for the day.
It came as the streets were transformed into a sea of colour as the city came to a standstill for the festivities.
Pics showed hundreds of handmade signs on show as some marchers even dressed their pooches up for the event.
And Hearses R Us frontman Craig Watson even brought his pink hearse to the event, as he aimed to help “bury” hate.
He said: “We have a pink hearse we hire out for funerals – and we got involved today to show support.
“We were promoting our message of ‘bury hate, and find love’.
“The turnout was massive – there were over 7,000 people there.
“It was a brilliant atmosphere – and we’re hoping it gets bigger and better going forward.”
And Craig was delighted to see icon actor McKellen joining in the parade.
He said: “He’s a big face. It’s great he was persuaded to come.”
