Guest Blog by Manchester Lib Dems: Out and Proud at Pride

Manchester Liberal Democrats were out in force during last weekend’s Manchester Pride Festival. Marc Ramsbottom, the Lib Dem candidate in the Manchester Central By-Election and John Leech MP led the Lib Dem contingent on the Pride parade. Around 20 Manchester Liberal Democrat Councillors and activists marched in the parade to promote Liberal Democrat campaigns for Equal Marriage and John Leech MP’s campaign to pardon Alan Turing, the Gay WW2 Hero and Father of Computer Science. Many other Liberal Democrat activists were also taking part in the parade with organisations ranging from Manchester University to the Village Manchester Football Club. City Centre Liberal Democrat Cllr Elaine Boyes (pictured) who is the current Lord Mayor of Manchester proudly represented Manchester City Council on the parade.

Liberal Democrats have a proud history of fighting for LGBT Equality and supporting Manchester Pride. You can view pictures of Manchester Liberal Democrats supporting Manchester Pride over the years on our new Facebook Page:

Thanks to everyone that came to watch the parade, came to support our stall and thanks to the Pride organizers for such a wonderful Festival. We’re already looking forward to Pride 2013!
