Here at Manchester Pride we want to ensure we’re doing everything we can to achieve our vision and support the LGBTQ+ community during the festival and beyond, with year round campaigns, events and opportunities. But we can’t do this without you, so please join in the conversation and take part in our new Online Consultation. The Online Consultation covers all things Manchester Pride and will be an invaluable tool in helping us develop all of our programmes to better represent, support and celebrate our wonderful LGBTQ+ community.

We are also aware that there is work to be done within the LGBTQ+ community itself. With this in mind we are reaching out to groups in Greater Manchester that we feel may be marginalised in an effort to understand how we can better support. We are doing this through conversations as part of our new Listening Groups project.
These Listening Groups will be an opportunity for individuals to interact with the Manchester Pride team and provide a safe space for them to share how they feel about the LGBTQ+ community in Manchester. These groups will be an opportunity for us to better understand how we can improve our support for the community throughout the year and improve visibility for marginalised groups and people. We’re keen to hear the voices of those who are particularly marginalised within the wider community but also within our own LGBTQ+ community.
