Have your say

Leeds Pride has revealed that Manchester Airport will be one of the sponsors of this year’s celebration.

Representatives from the airport announced the partnership at the Freedom Bridge in Leeds earlier this week. Leeds Pride 2017 will include entertainment in Millennium Square, a parade through the city centre with more than 60 floats and five hours of entertainment on Lower Briggate. More than 40,000 people are expected to attend the free event on August 5 and 6.

Patrick Alexander, Manchester Airport’s head of marketing, said: “We are delighted to be working with Leeds Pride for the first time to support such a worthwhile event.”
