THE 

PARADE

March with Pride 

The parade 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.

 

The aim of Wigan Pride is to have fun, celebrate the LGBTQ community in Wigan and raise awareness of the inequalities and issues still facing LGBTQ people at home and abroad.

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.

Parade Theme

This year marks 50 years since the Stonewall Riots and this year’s theme reflects this, celebrating important milestones that the LGBTQ+ community has made since 1969.

 

The Stonewall Riots were a series of violent protests in New York, which started following frequent police brutality against the LGBTQ+ community.

 

Following these demonstrations, pride marches started to appear all across the world in a stand against inequality and the fight for fair treatment of those identifying as LGBTQ+.

The Route

The parade starts at 11:00pm from Mesnes Park and proceeds down Bridgeman Terrace onto Mesnes Street.

 

The parade turns right onto Standishgate through Wigan town centre before turning onto Millgate, finally ending on Believe Square.

Get Involved 

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 group of friends, 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.  

Individuals will have opportunity of joining our Friends of Wigan Pride group, perfect for those who are not affiliated with any other LGBT+ organisation but want to parade either as a group of friends or alone willing to make new friends!

Individual

Whether your a community group, small business or large organisation show your support and march shoulder to shoulder with Pride.

Parade applications will open for groups in February 2019.
