This weekend Manchester saw tens of thousands of people attend this years annual Pride Festival.
The four-day festival celebrates the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, and saw headlining acts such as Anastasia, All Saints, Conchita and Pixie Lott.
The much-anticipated Pride Parade was held on Saturday, and brought a carnival atmosphere to the streets of Manchester with floats adorning decorations for this years theme ‘Love is Love’. Manchester Metropolitan University were involved in the parade with a float of their own, of which staff and students of MMU were invited to dress up and participate. Below are some photos from the parade, taken by staff member Lisa Bach.
