MARK FLETCHER - CEO

Far too much to cram into one sentence! So, here are a few words that fly around in my head when I think about Manchester Pride: Pioneering, equality, acceptance, togetherness, passion, change, Mancunian, brilliant!

The ability to give a voice to someone who may not always be heard. Being able to affect real change.

AMANDA LUNGREN - EVENTS ASSISTANT 

Manchester Pride means far more than planning events - it means contributing to a community I’m passionate about and creating spaces that promote inclusion and equality.

GREG THORPE - SUPERBIA PROJECT MANAGER

For me, Manchester Pride means Superbia! We are one of the only Pride organisations in the world with an Events and Grants programme for the arts. The money that is raised allows us to support LGBT+ culture and community events all year round through the Superbia programme.

ANDREW ROBERTS - MARKETING EXECUTIVE 

Through volunteering and working with Manchester Pride it's given me the opportunity to be even more connected to the LGBT+ community.  I've changed too, it's been quite a personal journey.

Manchester Pride allows me to be a part of something greater than myself, and knowing that I’m supporting the campaign for LGBT equality and helping to better the lives of others is a wonderful feeling.
