Opportunities to consult and co-design Manchester Pride events
We will be hosting co-design workshops for various aspects of the Manchester Pride Weekend with a variety of stakeholders including:
- Gay Village venues
- Youth Pride programme members (Youth Pride MCR stage)
- George House Trust (The Candlelit Vigil)
- Local Queer Artists (Superbia)
- LGBTQ+ Family groups (Family Pride)
- Local Activists (Human Rights Forum)
- Local communities and the Parade Troupe (Manchester Pride’s Parade Entry)
The programming and stages in the Gay Village Party will be co-produced with organisations and icons from our local LGBTQ+ communities, including:
- Donna Trump and Misty Chance supporting programming
- Trans Creative and Milk Presents producing the Trans Pride stage
- Darren Pritchard and the Ghetto Collective will produce Black Pride MCR stage
- Queer Women collective producing the Queer Women’s Takeover Stage
- Danny Beard supporting programming for Danny Beard and Friends stage
- Manchester-based collective Fat Pride to produce stage takeover
- Gay Village clubnight Swagga to produce stage takeover
Over 2022/23 we will host consultation workshops to gather feedback from marginalised groups within the LGBTQ+ communities about how we can work to support them, improve visibility and inclusion in Manchester Pride. These workshops will be held online, with an option for those who cannot attend to submit questions, ideas or recommendations in advance for discussion. We will hold additional in-person drop in sessions for those who cannot access online workshops.
- Disability and Neurodivergence
- Trans and Non-Binary
- People of Colour
- Over 55s
Additionally, we will be holding in-person drop-in sessions for community members to meet the team, meet the trustees and bring any questions or feedback points focussed around our four pillars for the year; Community, Transparency, Activism and Giving.
We will be holding our an annual Town Hall in Q4 and this will be open to the public.
Commencing from April 2022, we will hold a series of forums to decide the direction of Manchester Pride events 2023 and beyond.
Throughout 2022/23, we will undertake surveys to inform our plans and responses to the vast array of events we hold across the year. These surveys will ensure we obtain valuable data about what our stakeholders like and dislike, along with the opportunity for respondents to give open feedback about what they feel is important. We will release reports with the results of the surveys to ensure clarity and transparency for our communities.
