The Parade theme for this year is ‘Devotion.’ Manchester is a city devoted to embracing and celebrating diversity, especially the LGBT communities that have helped shaped Manchester’s cultural heritage and landscape over the centuries. We want people to celebrate the fact that Manchester is proud of its LGBT history and shares in its future. We want people to shout about who or what they are ‘Devoted to…’ For example ‘I’m Devoted to my wife or girlfriend,’ ‘Manchester is devoted to showing its support to its LGBT community,’ whoever or whatever you’re devoted to – the Manchester Pride Parade is the perfect platform to show your ‘Devotion!’
Manchester Gay Pride – The Big Weekend takes place in the world famous Gay Village in Manchester. The charity has been raising money for LGBT and HIV projects in the region and since 2003, has raised and distributed over £1.1million. Manchester Pride: CAMPAIGNS for equality and challenges discrimination, CREATES opportunity for engagement and participation and CELEBRATES lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender life.
