After a three-year hiatus due to the COVID19 pandemic, Liverpool Pride is back and taking to the streets of Liverpool City Centre once again.
And 2022 is the year that we all “Come Together”. The Liverpool Pride 2022/23 theme has been chosen to represent not only the city region’s LGBT+ community returning to in-person events and much needed connection to each other, but the need to come together as one united community, now more than ever, as we continue to have our rights and freedoms attacked.
Following the annual March With Pride (registrations now open), the free Pride in Liverpool festival, sponsored by Barclays, will centre around the Tithebarn Street festival hub, just a stones throw from the city’s Pride Quarter and visitor attractions.
In keeping with the theme’s ethos of togetherness and collaboration, LCR Pride Foundation is also supporting events in other parts of the region, including St Helens Pride (2nd July) and Pride at the Seaside (27th August), a brand new event in New Brighton, Wirral.
“Come Together” also speaks to the need for the LGBT+ community and its allies in the region to unite, take action and be heard on issues such as hate crime against LGBT+ people, the exclusion of Trans and Non-Binary people from the proposed conversion therapy ban and continued discrimination against the LGBT+ community.
The new campaign year will see LCR Pride Foundation continue to work with partners from across the region to progress its founding aim of making the Liverpool City Region the most LGBT+ friendly in the UK.
