Liverpool Pride 2018

Thousands of people descended on Limes Street and St George’s Plateau on Saturday 28th July 2018 for the beginning of the Liverpool Pride weekend. Many were there to take part in the parade which brought Liverpool City Centre to a standstill and others just to enjoy the spectacle.

Building on the last nine years, Liverpool Pride this year presented us with  #AllTogetherNow, a festival of inclusion, involving all corners of the LGBTQ+ and wider community. This weekend symbolises that freedom, that right, that ‘normality’ to love who we love, and be who we are.

The parade was the biggest so far with people from all sections of the community joining in to celebrate Pride and show their support for the event.

This is not only a celebration, Liverpool Pride is a protest against bigotry and memorial to Michael Causer, the teenager who was killed for being openly gay 10 years ago this year. The event is held annually in his memory  to demonstrate that the city of Liverpool stands together against homophobia.
