Book a serviced apartment for Manchester Pride 2012!
Manchester Pride will be running its 9th festival this year, celebrating and raising awareness of Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Trans-gender communities. The festival cites its main aim as to raise funding for Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Trans-gender charities which help the relevant communities in a variety of ways. The festival takes place annually over the August bank holiday weekend and is a great chance for anyone to celebrate the importance of acceptance to sexuality!
There are many ways for people to get involved in the festival. It is possible for groups, charities, political parties and commercial organisations to register to take part in the parade. So if you’re passionate about this worthwhile cause and you think your charity or political group think the same way, why not get involved and make a statement? There will be a theme to the parade, but this is yet to be announced. To give you an idea of what may be expected, the theme for 2011 was “Best of British” which saw a Vintage Tea Party extravaganza and excellent costumes and carnival floats from a variety of organisations who took part. The Lifestyle-Expo is another fantastic way to take part in this cause-worthy festival. The trade-free space dedicated to Lifestyle-Expo is a great opportunity for messages to be put across to the public; organisations set up stalls to give people advice on things like health, legal advice and community groups. If you’re a strong believer in LGBT rights and awareness-raising, you will find this part of the festival beneficial and inspiring. The best entertainment at Manchester Pride will be found at Pride Fringe where artistic and unconventional events are used to give a different take on the communication of anti-discrimination and LGBT related issues. The whole festival is always played out with a great sense of fun, but behind this support is given to the LGBT community. Whether you just want to enjoy the entertainment has to offer, or you really believe in the messages that are being given, Manchester Pride will cater to you!
