Description

Manchester Metropolitan University is proud to be a part of Manchester Pride Parade 2018!

Manchester Pride Parade is taking place on Saturday 25th August and it’s set to be the greatest show on earth, with this year’s theme of ‘Circus of Acceptance’.

We're looking forward to taking part in the Parade for the sixth consecutive year and want our staff, students and alumni to join in with the fun too! Being part of the Manchester Pride Parade is certainly something you will never forget and you’ll make lots of new friends whilst celebrating the LGBT+ community in Manchester.

Whatever your identity, age or ability, we'd love you to get involved with our entry and show that you’re #McrMetProud.

Further info

We will be meeting at 10:30 at No 70 Oxford Road (the old Cornerhouse) on the morning of the Parade to have a mini briefing and to get ourselves ready. You're welcome to bring costumes or just wear your own summery clothes, the choice is up to you. We also have some Pride t-shirts available in a range of sizes if you'd like to wear one of those. There's space at No 70 to chat and chill as well as change into costume if you have one, add decoration and, if you're so inclined, cover yourselves in glitter (there's always lots of glitter!). There's also a space to leave your bags and belongings during the Parade. From there we will walk to the Parade starting point on Liverpool Road at about 11:30.

You have the choice of being on the float itself or being a 'walker' who walks alongside the float during the parade. The Parade itself lasts about two hours so comfortable shoes are a must!

If you are based on the Cheshire campus, please contact pride@mmu.ac.uk as soon as possible to discuss travel arrangements for the day.

We'll be sending out more detailed information to all those who register nearer the time but if you have any queries in the meantime, please get in touch via pride@mmu.ac.uk.
