Levenshulme Pride March: Inspire to Shine

Join us for our March at 14.00 on Saturday 17th August starting at Levenshulme Inspire and ending at Shine Hair.

Our March is on the pavements with stewards to guide people and help at the crossings. This is our most high profile event bringing colour, joy and fun to Levenshulme. Everyone is welcome. Come and join us and help turn the A6 into the Gay6!

Inspire is location number 2 on the map, Shine is number 22.

Levenshulme Pride Vigil and Thank You

The Vigil will take place as 16.45 on Sunday 18th August on the Village Green. This is an opportunity to stand in solidarity against hatred and oppression of LGBT people. It is also a chance to say thank you to people involved in making Levenshulme Pride happen and celebrate and be proud of our very special community in Levenshulme.

The Village Green is location number 6 on the map.
