STOP PRESS – I have the greatest of pleasure to advise all readers to this post that the Salford Pride Entry in Manchester Pride ‘Love’ Theme Parade WON the annual float competition … special thanks go to Gemma Pagett, Chris Rice and most importantly our very own duo Ian Gregory and Steven Raven
Come on and lend a hand this year
It’s that time of year again … Salford will once again be “out, loud and proud” in the Parade at the Manchester Pride being held over the Bank Holiday weekend in August.
Young people from Salford’s LGBT Youth Group, along with LGBT residents & partners, will be designing a Salford “LOVE” float for this year’s theme … LOVE!
To make Salford’s entry bigger and better than any other year, we need as much help and as many ideas as possible! Then of course, we need you to join us during the parade itself!
If you are able to give a helping hand, then please contact Chris Rice for further information.

I recently had the pleasure of being invited to take part in the making of an exciting programme at Gaydio Studios in respect of Salford Residents living with HIV and the use of self testing kits … what they are and how they help

Meet outside the LGF: Number 5 Richmond Street M1 3HF
Price per Person: We would like to ask that if you can afford to pay just £2.00 towards our overall costs for this event, which go to paying for the historian to give the tour
Event Full Details: So you’ve seen those rainbow mosaics scattered across the city but you don’t know what they signify? Why not us and come on the Manchester LGBT heritage trail to find out?
With the help of local historian Paul Fairweather you will see the city with new eyes and discover more about Manchester’s hidden LGBT history as you are guided around the city. Stories will be shared, places of interest pointed out, and the city’s LGBT history brought to life.
The trail itself lasts around an hour and a half and will require walking. Appropriate footwear is advised.
We can’t guarantee the weather but we can guarantee that you’ll be entertained and informed!
