MARCH WITH PRIDE
Wigan Pride will be held on Saturday 12th August 2023. This year is a significant year for the Pride movement and the LGBTQ+ community as we commemorate 50 Years since the first Pride took place in the United Kingdom.
As we celebrate and look forward to the next 50 years, we'll recognise the challenges still faced by our community nationally and globally.
The pride march is an opportunity for you to get involved with Wigan’s most successful LGBTQ+ event. It’s your chance to show Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning people from all over Wigan, Manchester and further afield the very best that Wigan has to offer.
Participation in the parade gives the opportunity for expression of celebration, joy and triumph but also the voice to rightly express the continued fight for those injustices and inequalities that exist amongst us.
Wigan Pride is one of the town’s most highly anticipated events which will have hundreds of people marching proudly together through the town and thousands of supporters cheering us along the way.
This year we'd like you to join us as we turn the town into one of the largest parades Wigan has ever seen. So whether you're a community group or workplace gleaming with pride, standing shoulder to shoulder with an important message of support, the parade places you at the centre of the celebrations.
