LGBT Labour, in conjunction with Chester Labour Party, will once again be at Chester Pride, which this year takes place on Saturday 19 August. There will be a march through the city centre starting at 12 noon, after which we will be on our stall in Castle Square all afternoon. Meet from 11am at Robinson House, 25 Castle Street, Chester CH1 2DS - opposite The Golden Eagle.
Following its debut last year, Wythenshawe Pride is back! LGBT Labour will be there on Saturday 19 August from 10am until late afternoon at Wythenshawe Forum, Simonsway, Wythenshawe M22 5RX (map here)
Please RSVP below if you are able to join us there - it should be another great community event!
The 101 bus from Manchester City Centre stops near here, and the Forum is immediately outside the Wythenshawe Town Centre Metrolink stop.

Join us on August Bank Holiday weekend for the biggest Pride event in the North West: Manchester Pride!
On Saturday 26 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 - plus Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham!
The parade sets off from Liverpool Road at 12.30pm 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.
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 and selling our merchandise.
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.
Flag Market is just a short 10-15 minute walk from Preston train station.

Rising homelessness, driven to a big extent by seven years of austerity and a lack of affordable housing, is one of the biggest crises that this country faces.
For LGBT people who become homeless, there is an additional factor: the prejudice they still face because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Young LGBT people in particular are disproportionately likely to end up homeless - a study by the Albert Kennedy Trust in 2015 showed as many as a quarter people aged 16-25 facing homelessness may be LGBT.
Join LGBT Labour, in partnership with the Labour Campaign to End Homelessness and The Albert Kennedy Trust, for this Labour Party Conference fringe event. We will discuss the issue of LGBT homelessness, the causes, and how this crisis can be tackled.
Kate Green MP
Helen Hayes MP
Melanie Onn MP, Shadow Housing Minister
Sam Stopp, Labour Campaign to End Homelessness
Tim Sigsworth, The Albert Kennedy Trust
Gino Barnes, The Albert Kennedy Trust
Chair: Chris Wills, LGBT Labour
Refreshments will be provided. The venue is wheelchair accessible and is just half-a-mile from the Brighton Centre. The event is free and you will not need a Conference pass to attend, however places are limited so please RSVP below to guarantee a place.
