Just before Manchester Pride gets underway, we are delighted to be holding a special joint fundraiser with Stockport Labour Party. It's a screening of the 2014 film "Pride", telling the true story of how a group of London based lesbian and gay rights activists supported striking miners in Wales in the 1984-5 Miners' Strike, and the unlikely friendships that formed as a result. It's a fantastic film, and an important reminder of why Pride events still matter.
The event will take place on Wednesday 22 August at 7pm at Stockport Labour Club, 2 Lloyd Street, Stockport SK4 1QP. Entry is £5 and there will also be a raffle. Proceeds from the night will be split between LGBT Labour and Stockport Labour Party.
Stockport Labour Club is on the 192 bus route from Manchester, and is a 15-minute walk from Heaton Chapel train station. There is also free onsite car parking.
Please RSVP if you can make it - and if you have any queries, please contact the organiser, David Sedgwick, via the details below. See you there!
August Bank Holiday means it's time for the big one in the North West: Manchester Pride!
On Saturday 25 August, we'll be taking part in the Manchester Pride parade, where we will be joined by Greater Manchester Labour MPs, Councillors and local Labour Parties.
The parade sets off from Liverpool Road at 12noon on the Saturday. We'll be gathering outside the Roman Fort in Castlefield from about 11am. If you have an LGBT Labour T-shirt then please bring this with you - if not, then we will have some to give out on the day.
**PLEASE NOTE** Due to space restrictions on the parade, the organisers will be giving out a limited number of wristbands. We are allowed a maximum of 50 wristbands for our entry, so if you want to march with us it's really important you RSVP below.
From 11am-5pm on both the Saturday and Sunday we'll also have our stall at the expo in Bloom Street Car Park in The Village, where we'll be signing up new members, selling our merchandise and signing up people to our Trans Allies Network.
If you are able to help out on the stall and/or join us in the parade, then let us know by RSVP-ing below. Saturday afternoon straight after the parade is always our busiest time, so help at this point is particularly appreciated! We will also need cover during Saturday lunchtime and early afternoon (whilst we're in the parade), and on Sunday afternoon. Please let us know if you can help cover any of those periods.
