Posted:Hey guys and gals, will anybody be at manchester gay pride in august? I'm going with a group of friends as an alternative to creamfields because we have all decided we can't actually afford to go now. so pride comes as a marvellous alternative!

Just wondering if any HoPpers will be there, straight or gay?

Posted:it's on around august bank holiday. i'll look out for those rainbow poi. i think i might just take my socks, but get some glow ballz for them, i always end up annoying people with tails, usually cause i hit people with them!

Posted:Manchester Pride (not sure why its called that when it's normally called Mardi Gras) is on August Bank Holiday weekend.
The parties begin on the Firday night (25th Aug); the parade is on the Saturday usually around noon some time. The core of the vilage is cordoned off from the friday afternoon until early tuesday morning. There is also a host of things going on over the whole of the weekend culminating in the end party on the monday night (which often lasts the entire night).

I will not be able to make Pride this year, owing to my presence being required at a wedding in Kendal that weekend.

Posted:i think we could also ask to do a bit of a performance before the candle lit vigil on the monday night as well if we can get a few of us to do a burn and show our respects i think tht will go down a treat also

the candle lit vigil is held on the last night of pride where everyone who has lost a partnr or a friend to hiv and aids goes to sackville park, everyone has a candle and they light it and remember their loved ones. this is why i think a slow respectful burn may be suitable

what do ppl think
