Manchester Pride is Manchester’s annual LGBT festival, held over the August public holiday weekend, in and around the gay village. The main goal of Manchester Pride is to raise money for a variety of LGBT organisations and groups in Greater Manchester.
This bunting is among the most discreet on display- there are giant rainbow flags and huge swathes of colourful materials swung across Canal Street and neighbouring roads elsewhere. Hope everyone attending has a great time.
The festival lasts ten days with a series of art, culture, heritage, debate, sport, music and film events celebrating the great diversity of the LGBT community.
Pride Fringe ran from 17 to yesterday, 23 August. The Big Weekend starts today Friday 24th running until Monday 27th August. Singers Alison Moyet, Amelia Lily and Louise Dearman are among the acts on the Sackville Gardens stage: www.manchesterpride.com/2012
