Leeds - are you ready for Pride?

Written by

Sunday 2 August sees the ninth annual celebration for LGBT communities and their families and friends in Leeds and for visitors to the city. It promises a day-long party, with thousands expected to take part.

It's now the biggest annual one day festival in the city centre and remains very much a community event, still being completely free to attend. So, what's happening?

The parade itself starts at 2pm but people will start to gather for entertainment on the Parade Sage (including Ray Quinn and Lucy Spraggan) from noon, at Millennium Square. The parade takes about an hour, so at 3pm the Briggate main stage kicks off. You can look forward to Lorraine Bowen from the X Factor leading the names here, which also includes Angie Brown, Jake Quickendedn and Kym Mazelle.

More details are available at the Leeds Pride website.
