In 2019, Manchester Pride launched their new visual identity, designed to better represent the make-up of LGBTQ+ communities within Greater Manchester. It celebrates Trans, Intersex, Bisexual, Pansexual, Asexual, Non-binary, Genderqueer people along with some of their community’s subcultures such as Bears, Leather & Rubber. Pride is for everyone and they want every member of the community to walk past their window and ‘see’ themselves and feel proud to be part of the community here.
Manchester Pride is one of the UK's leading LGBTQ+ charities. It campaigns for LGBTQ+ equality, celebrates LGBTQ+ life and creates opportunities that engage LGBTQ+ people in Greater Manchester so that they can thrive. Every penny it raises is ploughed back into the community and it is dedicated to promoting and raising awareness for LGBTQ+ issues in the fight for equality. Manchester Pride Festival is its flagship event that takes over the city every year across the August bank holiday weekend in celebration of LGBTQ+ life. Find out more at: manchesterpride.com
