This year’s Manchester Pride was a great success with thousands of people who marched through the streets of Manchester for the annual Pride parade. More than 100 floats made their way through the city centre, setting off from Deansgate at 13:00 BST. Crowds of people waved rainbow flags and Pride Angel flags. The floats travelled through the city and finished on Whitworth Street, just outside the gay village.
LIVERPOOL PRIDE saw a record crowd of more than 50,000 people bring the city to life in a rainbow of colour.
The huge crowds – including Liverpool FC captain Steven Gerrard and wife Alex Curran – converged on the Pier Head and the city’s Gay Quarter.
Despite teeming rain more than 6,000 people took to the streets for the annual Pride March, which snaked from St George’s Plateau to Mann Island in a tide of colour, music and celebration
Led by Wallasey MP Angela Eagle, the Pride patron, the march also featured representatives from both Liverpool and Everton clubs.
The first ever North Wales Pride will take place between the 5th and 7th October this year. The event is organised by Cymru Pride Wales, a small group of volunteers who aspire to make a difference for the LGBT community by bringing events of this kind to the area. North Wales Pride 2012 will be hosted at Hendre Hall, Bangor, flanked by the picturesque Snowdonia National Park and the stunning North Wales coastline.
Pride's got talent The first heat of Calderdale Pride’s talent contest got underway on Saturday 3rd December at Bar Place with the Mayor of Calderdale, Nader Fekri opening the evening’s events.
Pride Volunteer, Vikki Kitson said “Pride's Got Talent is a first for us and was a huge success which totally exceeded our expectations”. "All our contestants put on a fantastic and fun evening's entertainment for the crowd, and the audience were really supportive throughout”.
Liverpool Pride organisers have said they will begin fundraising efforts for next summer’s event in December of this year to ensure the day remains free.
This is the earliest the event organisers have had to begin collecting money in the city’s history.
Liverpool City Council has said financial constraints may mean it is forced to cut funding to festivals in the city, though organisers say they will continue to work with the authority.
Calderdale Pride and Bar Place will be teaming up for the first heat of Pride’s Got Talent on Saturday 3rd December.
Pride Secretary Vikki Kitson said “We’re opening things up this time around and giving people a say in who and what they want to see onstage at Pride 2012”.
