For the whole of August it’s definitely queer up North as Manchester explodes with one of the biggest, baddest and maddest Pride festivals in the country. For the entire month, the Pride Fringe will produce the very best in LGBT arts, theatre, film, music and sporting events throughout the centre. A carnival atmosphere takes over the city centre for the Big Weekend of 23 – 25 August when the Pride Parade with over 100 outrageous and flamboyant floats bring the streets to a standstill. Tens of thousands descend on the gay village around Canal Street for 72 non-stop of hours of partying with top international acts on the main stages, and some of Europe’s top DJs playing in the huge Dance Arena.
