Around 20 people – essentially the island’s entire population – attended South Georgia’s first Pride last month. (Katharine Ganly) On a remote sliver thousands of miles away from South America and Antartica proper, the tiny island of St Georgia held its first Pride and quite literally everyone attended. Antartica’s summer resort, the British territory held its first LGBT+ parade last week. With the island having no permanent residents, it instead plays host for recurrent waves of research scientists, government officers and boating staff. Around 20 people showed up holding rainbow flags, a latex horse head mask and environmentally-friendly glitter to hop behind a pickup truck and drive along South Georgia’s winding snow-tipped cliffs.
