RECENT NEWS FROM MANCHESTER PRIDE
Manchester Pride has confirmed its annual August bank holiday festival will go ahead in 2019 but will look and feel radically different to previous years.
As we take on the challenge of reincarnating the festival we will provide an opportunity for Manchester’s LGBT+ people to tell us what they want from their festival in 2019.
Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham has set up a panel of experts to tackle the inequalities lesbian, gay, bi and trans people face, and ensure they feel included, valued and safe.
Mark Fletcher, chief executive for Manchester Pride, will sit on the panel which will reflect the diversity of the LGBT+ community from across Greater Manchester. It is to be headed up by Manchester Pride ambassador, former Lord Mayor of Greater Manchester and prominent LGBT+ activist, Carl Austin-Behan.
A weekend of premieres, firsts, new work and LGBTQIA celebrations for Manchester Pride! This year The Superbia Weekend is bigger and bolder than ever. The Superbia Weekend programme includes a diverse array of premieres and firsts, including film screenings, cabaret, conversation, community workshops, new art and our free post-Pride Parade party.
Manchester Pride opens its doors to an exciting and innovative project that aims to bring real change and a true commitment to LGBT+ inclusion and equality across the region once and for all.
We are taking a role as trailblazer for LGBT+ issues, and in particular inclusion and equality. We are making a commitment to rid Greater Manchester of inequality for LGBT+ people and we want you to help us.
