Pride events worldwide are being cancelled or postponed due the coronavirus crisis. Events as far ahead as July have been cancelled due to uncertainty on the matter.

 “A large number of Prides are awaiting clarification on their governments’ positions in relation to mass gatherings, and how long bans will remain in effect; we anticipate a large number of prides will make announcements in the coming days.”

  1. Re Manchester Pride

    Since the ombudsman ruling in 2015 that said the road order went beyond the powers of the council and was unlawful. Roads within the gay village are only closed to vehicles only and pedestrians have unrestricted free access into the village.

    In a meeting in 2002 Manchester Pride and the council was told they couldn’t insist on a charge to enter the village, however the Gay charity ignored this and started charging from 2003 even though it was against the law.

    Manchester Pride should be ashamed of themselves as they took your right of access away and still continue to mislead the LGBTQ + community in their misleading advertisements.

    If you have been mislead by Manchester Pride then insist a full refund from them.
