16th - 22nd July
Liverpool Pride: Producing Equality
Join Liverpool Pride in Tate Exchange, from 16th to 22nd July, for a week of events and workshops that demonstrate the excitement and commitment with which people across our region create a Pride for everyone.
Each year Liverpool Pride brings the city to a halt with a celebration of LGBT+ lives and culture. For the months leading up to Pride, volunteers and community groups across the region prepare costumes, banners, artworks and performances for the big weekend.
Drop in to Tate Exchange and meet the Liverpool Pride Volunteers who will be here to welcome you into the debate and show you how to get involved in their campaign against homophobia and transphobia.
There will be March banners on display from artists
Ben Youdan, Oliver Bliss, Sophie Green and Brian D Hanlon
