Yesterday along with Sandra and Stephanie we went over to Liverpool to support the first official Liverpool Pride Event.
The atmosphere was electric with a massive multi coloured carnival atmosphere. The event started with a march, sadly I got over too late for the start of the march but was able to witness a marvellous spectacle. My colleague, Secombe Councillor Denis Knowles marched with the LGBTory group, I managed to get the snap of Denis (pictured on the header photo in the Terence Higgins Trust T Shirt) with the group.
After the march there was plenty of time to visit the many stalls that were all over Dale Street and the side streets, as well as taking in some great performers on the three stages that were provided as well as participating in a cocktail or three at Sakura and taking in a meal at Las Iguanos in Liverpool One. All in all a tremendous occassion that was supported by thousands of people from all over the northwest of England and beyond.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the organisors, the sponsors and all those who attended for making the day the success it was. Lets hope this festival is repeated year on year.
