Manchester Pride (BID/CITYCO)

Each summer, Manchester BID teams up with Manchester Pride to ensure a warm welcome for Pride festival visitors over the long Bank Holiday.

Many BID member businesses show their support with rainbow themed store decorations, wonderful window displays, staff volunteering and donations to local LGBTQ+ charities. The BID provides marketing assets and window vinyls to help promote activities.

2022: Proud – An Audio-Visual Exhibition

In celebration of Manchester Pride, Manchester BID presents Proud, an audio-visual exhibition, created by Heard Storytelling, to celebrate Manchester’s LGBTQIA+ community.

Across the city’s shopping streets discover 20 beautiful large-scale portraits and true spoken stories from LGBTQIA+ storytellers who live or work in the city.

From the streets of Jamaica, stages of Manchester, dressing rooms of working men’s clubs and the nation’s TV screens, these tales take listeners on personal and candid journeys, all focused on the theme ‘Proud’.
