Watch as 20,000 join Liverpool’s biggest ever March with Pride

12 months ago

Pride in Liverpool welcomed thousands to the city yesterday as the annual March took place with mini events popping up across the city centre.

Liverpool was ‘a city full of pride’ on Saturday 29th July, as 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.

Andi Herring, CEO and Co-founder of LCR Pride Foundation, the organisation responsible for delivering Pride in Liverpool, said: “Celebrating Pride has never been more important, with the prejudice and injustice that the LGBT+ community is facing in the UK and around the world. As a city full of Pride, we have today stood together as a community, with our allies, to march in protest against those attacks on our rights and celebrate the beauty and diversity of our identities.

“We have also been honoured to march alongside KyivPride, to send a message of solidarity, unity, and hope. No matter where you are in the world, LGBT+ people demand the right to live freely, happily, and safely and we will continue to fight for these rights.”

As well as the annual march mini-events popped up across the city in venues like Museum of Liverpool and St Nick’s Gardens. Visitors were also treated to a live sound station at the Royal Albert Dock as the Blue and Yellow submarine used in Eurovision welcomed some of the city’s best loved drag acts.
