All the best to Manchester Pride for this years event. Although I cannot be there this year, I will be listening via Gaydio which will help me feela little closer to my home city. Have a happy and safe Pride. XXX
“Tickets for the Big Weekend cost £17.50 and are available from Manchester Pride’s website or at venues across the city.”
Shame on Manchester Pride for their greed. They do not speak for me or many in our community. Especially not for anyone who happens to be young, old, astudent, unemployed or on a low income.
Fortunately, opposition to Manchester Pride’s greed and their unaccountable and opaque financial arrangements is growing, year on year. If you share this opposition you could do worse than get involved with Reclaim the Scene, or if you don’t live in Manchester, do what I did and join their Facebook group.
Oh Steve in Brazil, blah blah blah we have all heard it a 1000 times before and the end of the day Manchester Pride raised £135,000 in 2009 all of which went to charity no other pride has ever raised to much!
If you dont like it go to London Pride, or Brighton Pride but London Pride is currently asking for donations to keep it free, and I very much doubt that Brighton Pride will be making £135,000 to give to charity after the cost £250,000 to put the event on.
Just give it up!
Sorry not Steve in Brazil!!! Last comment was to Andrew.
