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!
MICHAEL LEVER - HEAD OF EVENTS
Manchester Pride means that I get to do something brilliant and meaningful and make a difference.
CALLUM BROOME - DEPUTY EVENTS MANAGER
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.
PHOEBE WOODALL - DIGITAL ENGAGEMENT APPRENTICE
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.
JULIA CHILD - FINANCE MANAGER
It means the world and beyond!
JOHN SAUNDERS - ASSISTANT TO THE CEO
Manchester Pride means to me; being part of a team and the life changing work the charity does, not just across our great city, but across all the boroughs that make Greater Manchester a leading and inspiring place where our LGBT+ community can thrive.
