Liverpool Pride is back for its ninth year, with the theme #AllTogetherNow, which encompasses every branch of the LGBTQIA+ and wider communities, coming together in celebration of equality and diversity no matter what their ethnicity, gender, sexuality, belief or however they define themselves.
The festival venue will be along Tithebarn Street, near the Superlambanana and the march will start from the front of St George's Hall as usual. Open Table, St Bride's, and people from other churches in Merseyside will once again take part in the march. The Rt Revd Paul Bayes, Bishop of Liverpool and Patron of Liverpool Pride, will join us again this year. We'll also have an art workshop beforehand, a community stall on the Saturday, and a reflective service on the Sunday to round off the weekend
How do I join in?
- Let us know you’re coming by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know you’d like to march and if you’ll be bringing friends, family or folk from your congregations/community. Do please let us know you are coming so we can share with you where the group will muster as it can be extremely difficult to find the group amongst thousands of marchers. As there will be speeches and music, it will be too loud to hear a mobile phone so you may miss us if we don’t know you’re coming along
- Buy a T Shirt:
Buy a Christians at Pride t-shirt - onebodyonefaith.org.uk/shop/christians-at-pride-t-shirt
Buy an Open Table t-shirt - email email@example.com with size by Friday 20th July.
If you are ordained, please consider wearing your dog collar and/or a stole/scarf.
- Make some placards: Come along to St Bride’s, Percy Street, Liverpool L8 7LT on Monday 23rd July 4.00pm to 7.30pm to create some placards or banners to carry during the march sharing a message of radical Christian Inclusion. Alternatively make your own at home or in your church and bring them along on the day.
- Help out on the Open Table stall: Open Table will be hosting a stall in the community tent offering a chance for festival goers to have conversations, make prayer flags, and get their face painted. If you could spare an hour or two to help between 11am and 6pm on Saturday 28th July, let us know.
- Extend the invitation: If you know of any other churches who would love to show their support extend the invitation or send their details to us and we’ll do it for you.
