Years of Policing With Pride
To celebrate this weekend’s Manchester Pride festival, the city’s annual celebration of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender life, we have put together a gallery of images from our archives featuring police participation in the Manchester Pride Parade dating back to 2003.
A police contingent, made up of officers and staff from Greater Manchester Police’s Pride Network, members of police forces from around the country plus friends and supporters, will once again join the spectacular event in the city. They will be marching under the ‘Policing With Pride’ banner.
The annual festival, sees thousands of people flock to the city to take part in events ranging from the parade, to theatre, comedy and music.
The festival culminates with the HIV Candlelit Vigil in memory of those lost to the virus.
