Join Us at Liverpool Pride
Publish Date: 30/07/2012
In just two years, Liverpool Pride, which takes place this Saturday August 4th 2012, has established itself as one of the major highlights in the LGB&T community’s summer calendar. Bursting onto the scene in 2010, the inaugural Liverpool Pride festival attracted over 20,000 people, which was doubled to over 44,000 in 2011. Big numbers are expected for this weekend!
For 2012 Festival organisers are promising the best event yet, a festival which Liverpool’s LGB&T community is proud of, attracting people from across the country to experience the diverse culture of one of Europe’s most exciting cities.
Liverpool Pride 2012 will take place at Liverpool’s iconic pier-head and throughout the Stanley Street Gay Quarter. In addition to this, there will be a weekend of cultural events taking place at some of Liverpool’s most influential arts and cultural establishments. The festival’s ‘Nautical but Nice’ theme, gives a nod to the city’s commemoration of the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, whilst at the same time, celebrating the city’s rich maritime history and taking advantage of the main festival site, which sits on the banks of the River Mersey.
Appearing at Liverpool Pride this year will be Marcus Collins, TOWIE star Jessica Wright, Essex Girls 2 Shoes and Liverpool’s own Liz McClarnon who will all appear on the festival’s Waterfront Stage as part of a special river pageant with many other performers, including a focus on local Mersey talent.
The Lesbian & Gay Foundation will be just one of the many organisations taking part in what looks set to be a fantastic event.
We hope to see you there!
