Pride landed at the Royal Albert Dock on Saturday with thousands visiting the yellow and blue submarine sound station throughout the day.

Thousands felt the love this weekend at the royal Albert Dock as Liverpool held its annual Pride event. Partnering with LCR Pride Foundation, the dock was animated with giant deckchairs and hearts with refreshed rainbow designs where visitors queued to grab a selfie. 

The Submarine sound station made a return with an energetic six-hour set from a roster of DJs from Liverpool’s gay scene, including Lady Sian, Shenice, WMNKND and Soraya Vivian who performed a medley of tracks. The Time to Shine podiums were used to full effect by go-go dancers from House of LaPorta and Filla Crack. 

The dock was alive in the sun while visitors enjoyed dockside dining and exploring world-class attractions and shops, those Shouting it Loud for Pride 2023 revelled in a truly unforgettable day at Royal Albert Dock. 

Sean Morrison, estate manager at Royal Albert Dock, says:

“It was wonderful to partner with LCR Pride Foundation to create such an electrifying event for our visitors. The sense of unity and joy created an amazing atmosphere, and it was an honour to create an inclusive space for the LGBTQ+ community and allies.”

Katherine Caldwell from The Nest, says:

“We were delighted to be part of the absolutely electric Pride in Liverpool celebrations, and to also celebrate Kyiv Pride with our Ukrainian friends during the dedicated DJ sessions onboard the submarine. What an incredible party for all our visitors, and we loved seeing our little shop so busy and full of happy visitors.”

An estimated 20,000 people joined the 2023 “March with Pride” from St George’s Hall to Pier Head alongside thousands of spectators lining the streets.

Continuing the city’s Eurovision legacy and solidarity with Ukraine, the annual “March with Pride ” was held jointly with KyivPride, the LGBT+ organisation of the Ukrainian capital, as well welcoming Ukrainian delegates, and community members from across the UK and Europe.

This year showcasing a new format, Pride in Liverpool was celebrated across multiple zones across the city centre, which featured activities, community performances and local organisations. This was complimented fringe events from local businesses and a host of activity and entertainment throughout the city’s Pride Quarter.
