We’re looking for 300 volunteers to help out across Manchester Pride Festival and The Superbia Weekend.
Applications are open to absolutely everyone regardless of faith, race, ethnicity, ability, sexuality and gender identity.
Volunteering over August Bank Holiday weekend means you’ll be right at the heart of Manchester Pride Festival, where we, Greater Manchester and beyond come together to celebrate, fundraise and campaign for LGBT+ life.
There are several exciting volunteer roles available for you to try your hand at over the festival- you could fundraise for the Manchester Pride Fund, help ensure the Manchester Pride Parade runs smoothly by becoming a Parade Marshall, work with us as a Green Volunteer to improve the event’s sustainability, and more.
Superbia is Manchester Pride's busy programme of LGBT+ culture for Greater Manchester. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in arts, culture and LGBT+ communities to support our events which run year-round and across all 10 boroughs. Roles can include gallery stewarding, assisting visitors with our event programme and supervising performance and workshop events. There are plenty of ways to get involved!
