Liverpool Pride is now bigger than Birmingham’s, more than twice the size of Bristol’s, Nottingham’s & Cardiff’s, almost twice the size of Leeds’, and just slightly shy of Brighton Pride. To achieve that in just 3 years shows the passion and determination of the city and the fact this lively northern metropolis is now well and truly on the gay map. Well done Liverpool!

It was a good day overall, shame about the weather but I guess we were tempting fate with a nautical theme, but it was nice to see the huge turnout despite the weather.
The only other annoying thing was that we had to move the start point to in front of the walker art museum as St George’s hall was already booked for a wedding. I know a lot of disabled people (my boyfriend included) who had quite a bit of difficulty with the cobblestone road there. Hopefully they learn from that if we have to move the start point again.
Highlight for the march for me had to be the Nyan cat float somebody made, I hope it survived the rain.
I had to hold up the head with my arms for most of the march, but it survived!
Yes, we had a great time at Liverpool Pride, together with daughter and grandchild, brother and sister-in-law. A really great day out in Liverpool! Proud to be Out and Gay ! Thank You to all the volunteers !
