Youth Pride MCR and Family Pride MCR

Youth Pride MCR and Family Pride MCR

Sunday 29th August 2021

In 2019, Youth Pride MCR was our first event especially curated for the younger members of our LGBTQ+ family. This unique event brought together creativity, fashion, music and more as we created a safe and nourishing space for young people aged 14+, who wanted to experience Pride in a way that was designed just for them. Our special Youth Pride MCR parade entry took to the streets as part of the Manchester Pride Parade.

Youth Pride MCR is free to attend. 

Saturday 28th August 2021

You're never too young to celebrate Pride, and we wanted to ensure families could take advantage of the festivities at Manchester Pride Festival! We invited you and your families to Sackville Gardens to take part in a programme of activities centred around fun, wellness and learning. Activities included:

Aerial hoop
Queen Vs. Bowie Disco
The Junk Orchestra
Drag Story Time
Pathways to parenthood
Live parade screening
+ much more!

Please note that our plans for Youth Pride MCR and Family Pride MCR are based on the success of England's Roadmap out of lockdown published by the UK Government on 22nd February 2021. We can’t predict the future and we know that we could find ourselves in a situation in the coming months where we are unable to deliver Youth Pride MCR and Family Pride MCR as non socially distanced in-person events. Depending on the restrictions, this scenario would see us deliver some socially distanced, in-person live events. If this isn’t possible, we will deliver a series of digital events.
