Liverpool Pride is a registered charity which organises an annual festival and different community events throughout the year which supports and involves lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. We are an entirely volunteer-led organisation and volunteers are at the centre of everything we do. In August 2010, 21,000 people attended the inaugural Liverpool Pride festival and since then up to 65,000 people have joined the festival each year! This means there’s plenty of great opportunities to get involved, develop your skills and learn new ones.
The roles we have at present are:
We need a small army of helpers to get make our big weekend a success and make sure our crowds are safe and happy. We also need to gather information about them and collect donations to help keep our Pride free to attend. Roles include
- Donations Collectors
- Audience Survey Team
- Arts & Crafts helpers
Its a brilliant way to meet new people and have a great time. Full training will be given at a venue in Liverpool City Centre between the dates of 15th and 25th of July: fill in the registration form to find out more.
Our team is very diverse with people from all kinds of backgrounds and cultures, ages and tastes. Some are LGBT+, some not; some have disability, some not – everyone is welcome! We do however ask that you are 18 or over, due to the tasks involved.
We are seeking motivated, self-starters to join our successful Fundraising Team, working alongside our regular Pop-Up Shops at various events and on the Gay Scene in Liverpool.
