Owain Wyn Evans to be Patron

LGBT Foundation has today announced their new patron, famous TV weather reporter and LGBTQ+ rights advocate Owain Wyn Evans, as he officially kicked off their Manchester Pride At Home celebrations.

Owain Wyn Evans is an award winning television presenter, and is known across the UK and beyond as the drumming weatherman. Having worked as a BBC presenter for over 15 years, he is currently the senior weather presenter for Media City-based BBC North West Tonight – where you’ll see him not only delivering the forecast every evening, but also displaying a fine array of three-piece suits, brooches and pocket squares. LGBT Foundation is a national charity delivering advice, support and information services to lesbian,

gay, bisexual and trans communities. With a history dating back to 1975, they campaign for a fair and equal society where all LGBT people can achieve their full potential. Every year they serve 40,000 people – amplifying people’s voices, providing support and offering hope.

In the announcement Owain officially opened the organisation’s Manchester Pride At Home celebrations; a series of online events, activities and support to bring the Pride into people’s homes this August Bank Holiday. The weekend programme includes panel talks, online webinars, a fitness session, a makeup tutorial and much more.
