IT’S TIME FOR PRIDE!
Kicking off this evening at 5 pm, Manchester Pride promises to be a 4 day non-stop party involving Diva Karaoke, Bongo’s Bingo and some incredible headline acts.
Manchester Pride, known as The Big Weekend, celebrates LGBT+ life and has been going on for more than 25 years.
This year is no different and the city has embraced its flamboyant ways by covering every nook and cranny in rainbows.
Here are some of our favourite Pride-themed decorations you can find around Manchester:

Not only are they the quickest way to get around Manchester, but with their rainbow makeover they’re now the most stylish!

Spice up your morning caffeine fix by going to Costa and getting it in one of these rainbow cups! Definitely Instagram worthy.

We adore this ‘brush of colour’ added to a walkway in Spinningfields!
At the start of this year’s #ManchesterPride I have raised the Rainbow flag at @gmpolice HQ this morning with @GMPPrideNetwork Insp Jacqui Prest. We have also got our Pride epaulettes ready for the parade tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/KjLbcrLVWQ

Basically, Manchester Pride has taken over and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Long live the rainbows and prepare yourselves for a weekend of laughter, drag queens, colour, diversity and PRIDE.
