It’s Manchester Pride!

Manchester Pride’s big weekend has begun and there’ll be a bi marching group on the parade today.

To join them you need to go to the assembly point at Liverpool Road in Castlefield – on the city’s old Roman fort. Look for the pink, purple and blue of the BiPhoria banners and people in BiPhoria’s purple “Manchester Bisexuals” teeshirts.

The parade should start around 1pm but aim to get there nearer 12 noon for assembly. As with most Pride marches, it’s a long walk so you might be wise to think about your footwear and bring a bottle of water. And as it’s Manchester you might want a (purple) brolly as well!
