Come and join Manchester Pride's Big Weekend - one of the biggest parties in the UK. From Friday 26 to Monday 29 August, tens of thousands of people descend upon Manchester's world-renowned Gay Village to celebrate the climax of the Manchester Pride’s ten-day festival.
By day, there's three stages packed full of world-class entertainment as well as hundreds of Market & Lifestyle Expo stalls.
By night, Manchester's exciting gay bars and clubs take you through to the early hours of the morning with events that will make you wish the Big Weekend never came to an end.
The Brighton Pride 2011 Parade, Park event and Street Party WILL GO AHEAD AS SCHEDULED on Saturday.
Pride in Brighton and Hove are delighted to announce Alexandra Burke as headliner for the Preston Park 2011 event. The x-factor winner and chart topper will be bringing her inimitable R&B dance sound to the Pride Live stage on August 13.
Following the sell-out success of her debut concert tour ‘All Night Long’ earlier this year, Alexandra will remind crowds once again why she won votes, and hearts, with her live performances on x-factor.

"It took me about three hours to get ready," he said. "It's fantastic. This is what we are, and Pride is an excuse to show people that we enjoy who we are and there is nothing wrong with it."

Four years ago, Grey’s Anatomy star Isaiah Washington was fired from the hit ABC series after using a homophobic slur during an off-camera altercation with co-star Patrick Dempsey. A few months ago Kobe Bryant hurled a gay slur at Bennie Adams, an NBA referee without conscience or remorse because he wanted to strike an emotional chord that would reverberate through the man’s psyche. It was crystal clear that the Laker star meant to hurt the referee in the worse possible way, and that was to assassinate his character publicly and demean his manhood.

Andreas Deja, award-winning veteran animator for Disney, has suggested the company would be open to featuring both openly gay characters and gay families in future projects.
Mr Deja, who is gay and worked on The Lion King, Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast said to News.com.Au:
“Is there ever going to be a family that has two dads or two mums? Time will tell. I think once they [Disney chiefs] find the right kind of story with that kind of concept, they will do it. It has to be the right kind of story and you have to find that first.”
