Description

Free Yourself, Know Yourself - Manchester Pride has announced its programme of events for Youth Pride MCR - a brand new element of this year’s Manchester Pride Festival.

Youth Pride MCR is a free-to-attend event for people age 14+ and will take place over the August bank holiday weekend as part of the annual Pride celebrations. It has been developed through engagement with young people from across Greater Manchester.

The event will take place from Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August at, YES - a fully accessible, private event space on Charles Street. Located 320m from the Gay Village and minutes from the parade route, Youth Pride MCR will take place across both the venue’s pink room and basement area.

Youth Pride MCR will be made up of two different elements over the course of two days.

Saturday is Free Yourself. The day will start with all Youth Pride MCR attendees walking the parade together for the first time. Then, all will be led to YES for an afternoon of fun with DJs, vogue workshops, post-parade partying and special guests. For those who want to step away from that, guests can visit the quiet zone, where attendees can partake in games, a sensory area and mental health discussion.

Sunday is Know Yourself. The day will start with an unwinding yoga session and taking a moment to reflect. The day consists of author talks, acting workshops, drag how-to and much more.

Youth Pride MCR attendees will be learning screen printing, cross stitching, dancing and contributing to art pieces. The basement will again play host to the quiet zone, film screenings and meditation sessions.

The Pink Room and Quiet Zone are encouraged to be a space for young people only, but parents can enjoy the roof terrace or bar if they wish to wait within the venue.

PLEASE NOTE THIS SPACE HAS A STRICT NO ALCOHOL POLICY.

ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 WHO IS SUSPECTED OF BEING INTOXICATED MAY BE REFUSED ACCESS.

ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 WHO IS SUSPECTED OF BEING INTOXICATED WITHIN THE SPACE MAY BE ASKED TO LEAVE AND YOUR LEGAL GUARDIAN MAY BE NOTIFIED.
