Liverpool Pride 2017

The theme for Liverpool Pride 2017 was International Love, with organisers spreading the Liverpool message far and wide. Liverpool Pride's International Love theme complemented a city-wide season of events and performances to mark the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love.

Liverpool Pride has grown to become one of the city's major annual events. Last year, the festival attracted more than 32,000 festival goers to celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities.
