5 ways you can celebrate Pride this summer

Pride Liverpool

Pride Month takes place annually in June as a celebration of LGBTQ+ communities and to mark the month when the Stonewall riots took place.

The event provides an opportunity for members of the LGBTQ+ community and their allies to celebrate their identities, accomplishments, and reflect on the struggle for equality.

If you’re looking for ways to get involved this year, here are a few ideas.

LGBTQ+ Summer Social

This is an event for LGBTQ+ students, staff and allies, organized by LSTM, LJMU and UoL’s LGBTQ+ networks, and the cross-institution Trans and Nonbinary support network.

Come and join an afternoon of fun, food, and friends at Sefton Park on Sunday 25 June.

Families, partners, and dogs are welcome, and although the event kicks off at midday, please feel free to arrive later than that if needed.

Please sign up via the eventbrite link, so the organisers have an idea of numbers and can update you with all the details closer to the time.Bottom of Form
