The Pride March will start at 11.00am from Listergate, you will see a yellow sign that say’s “Pride Marchers” please start to assemble at this point.
The front of the March will assemble on Albert Street and there will be vehicles we would ask you to keep to Listergate so that we can keep you safe and get everyone in position.
Our Pride March is open to all to participate and as such there are a few points to keep in mind;
Our March is a glorious procession of colour and noise. There will be many banners, most will be of a supportive, celebratory nature and some will be in protest to some of the many inequalities we as a community face.
However if you see or are upset by banners, slogans or chanting that are Racist, Transphobic, Homophobic, Islamaphobic, Anti-Semitic or anything you consider to be a hate crime, we would ask that you;
