Why volunteer for Manchester Pride?

It's difficult to express how much we adore our volunteers, and with their invaluable help, we're able to do the things we do. From collecting donations at the Festival, to marshalling the Parade, to volunteering at our glamorous Spring Benefit - volunteering with us is exciting and so rewarding! It’s a great way to make new friends and feel part of a community, and we have plenty of amazing perks to offer you in return for your time.

How do I get involved?

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 LGBTQ+ life.

There are several exciting volunteer roles available for you to try your hand at over the festival - you could fundraise for Manchester Pride, 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 LGBTQ+ culture for Greater Manchester. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in arts, culture and LGBTQ+ 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!

Applications are open to absolutely everyone regardless of faith, race, ethnicity, ability, sexuality and gender identity. Click each box below to find out more about the different roles we have to offer each year.

To volunteer, you must be 16+ but please note that Manchester Pride Live is an 18+ Event only.
