Sign in: Staff/Students
Staff, students, alumni, and friends are invited to join the University’s entry in the 2015 Liverpool LGBT Pride Festival.
Now in its sixth year, Liverpool Pride was established in memory of gay teenager Michael Causer, who was murdered in a homophobic attack in 2008. The festival is held annually, on the anniversary of his death, to celebrate his life and empower the LGBT communities.
Hayley Meloy, Chair of the University’s LGBT Staff & Postgraduate Network, said: “Despite the tragic roots of the event, there’s always a great atmosphere (come rain or shine) and the solidarity from those lining the parade route is amazing! Straight allies, as well as LGBT staff and students, are very welcome to join the University entry in this show of support for Liverpool’s LGBT community.”
Liverpool Pride will take place on Saturday 1 August. The march will begin from St George’s Hall at 11.45am and is expected to end around 2.00pm. This year’s theme is Love Is No Crime and participants are invited to come dressed in their most wild and wonderful interpretations of the theme.
