London Pride is also a popular event among the community. The countries capital doesn’t disappoint with its wide variety of events and attractions across the city.
London Pride is particularly famous for its Pride March where we see thousands of people taking to the capitals streets for the annual march. Service men and women, members of the emergency services, groups of people all coming together in unity to celebrate a remarkable event.

Liverpool Pride is growing year on year! During the 2018 Pride, Liverpool Pride saw around 50,000 attend and come together. The Liverpool Pride is a free festival for two days for the community and the city to come together and celebrate equal rights. Amazing atmosphere, real buzz and a great event.
Unlike most Pride events held in the early summertime, this Pride event is normally on during the beginning of August and for very good reasons. The Board of Trustees attempt to organise the festival on the weekend closest to the 2nd August to commemorate a young gay man, Michael Causer, who was murdered in a homophobic attack in the city, in 2008. Ever since it has remained as one of the biggest free Gay Pride festivals in Europe.
