Leeds Pride 2015

Leeds Pride 2015 is just around the corner and we can’t wait! The city of Leeds is celebrating this annual celebration of love, equality and diversity on Sunday 2nd August and we’d love for you to join in with the celebrations. The event brings the whole community together and it features a parade, some superb live music and lots more.

While the original Pride marches were a form of protest, years of campaigning has led to the event becoming a fantastic celebration of individuality.

The Parade Stage in the Millennium Square and the Main Stage in Lower Briggate ensures that the event takes over the city of Leeds and the parade will be led by the West Yorkshire Police Band, who will perform hits such as ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ and ‘It’s Raining Men’.

The Parade Stage will be headlined by former X Factor star Ray Quinn. Outside his music, the talented singer-songwriter is famous for his acting, dancing and performances on TV as his extravagant performances won him ITV’s Dancing on Ice competition.

Lucy Spraggan is the other huge name performing on the day. The singer also found fame on X Factor when she became the first contestant in the show’s history to score a top 40 single before the shows even aired! Her live performances are practically unmissable and we can’t wait to see her!

Last year, the event saw over 30,000 people attend and every hotel in the city centre was booked for the evening before the event so if you’re looking for a hotel then you need to get booking quickly!

Leeds Pride 2015 takes place on Sunday 2nd August, it’s a free event for all in the LGBT community plus friends and families.
