As thousands turned out for Manchester’s annual Pride parade today, PinkNews takes a look at a selection of photos from the festivities.

But the club stood up against fans’ attempts to mar the celebrations with homophobia, still celebrating Pride today, and the parade went off without a hitch.

Check out a selection of photos below:
