Love wins the day at Manchester Pride 2014

Young people from Salford’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Youth Group are celebrating after winning best community float at this year’s Manchester Pride.

The group worked with local people to design Salford’s “Summer of Love” float using real flowers donated by Salford allotment holders.

Salford City Council teamed up with partners from across Salford including the University of Salford, Seddon Construction, Salix Homes, City West, Salford CVS, Healthwatch, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust  and residents from the city’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) forum and youth group to create the float. The float took part in the parade through  Manchester city centre on Saturday 23 August

Councillor  Paul Dennett, assistant mayor for workforce, said: “We are incredibly proud of our LGBT community in Salford and I’m delighted that Salford’s LGBT community did so well in this year’s parade!  Pride weekend is a fantastic annual event in Greater Manchester.”
