A white man with short blue hair and a serious expression punches the air in emphasis. He is wearing a pink bandana and a black t-shirt with a white version of the Queer Alternative logo on it. The logo is the words The Queer Alternative and two skulls surrounded by smaller words, (too small to be legible on this image). He is also wearing blue and black camo shorts, a large black, blue and pink tail. The tops of his newrocks are just visible. Behind him are the pillars of Southampton Guildhall and people in the crowd. Two women with red hair hold up a smiling woman with a black top hat and an amazing smile. She is doing jazz hands at the camera and wears a black corset over a check shirt and black leggings with cutout detail down the front, she has blond dreadlocks. The background is mainly dark with city lights in the distance. A person wearing a pride flag headbangs to music from a loudspeaker held up by a person in shades.
