23 February 2011

Liverpool Pride will be holding its first event of 2011 - a fab film-night fundraiser TOMORROW (24 February). We're screening the Hollywood Classic Some Like It Hot hosted by the wonderful Liverpool actor and singer Alan Cross. We chose the film because it we think it encapsulates Liverpool Pride's ethos to the full - entertainment for everyone but with a strong underlying message of celebration of diversity and grace under pressure. Oh - and it's VERY funny too!

In August 2010, Liverpool Pride brought 21,000 people onto the streets of Liverpool to celebrate the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities of the city in a day of exuberant performance that was an extraordinary show of togetherness reminiscent of the city's Chinese New Year or Africa Oyé festivals. It was a day that put the best of Liverpool on show and to proclaim loudly that Liverpool people fully support their LGBT family, friends and colleagues.

The tickets for Thursday are £10.00 which includes a glass of wine from our first new sponsors of 2011, Barefoot Wine. Through the kind support of Picturehouse at FACT, this has to be the first fundraiser where you save money on the price of a ticket and a drink and still make a sizeable donation! We'd love to see you there, helping to make Liverpool Pride 2011 another glorious day for everyone across the city.
