The 3 day Birmingham Gay Pride festival was held over the bank holiday weekend at the end of May. This year was the cities first ever “party in the park” were gay boys and girls celebrated gay pride in Birmingham’s most popular park Cannon Hill. Although the day was sunshine and showers thousands turned out to enjoy the main stage, dance tent, community arena and popular cabaret tent. The parade was held the following day on the Sunday, and although it was clear to see many hung-over faces amongst all the feathers and glitter it wasn’t long before the pride atmosphere kicked in.
The posh department store Selfridges also had a special Pride event in-store, with special discounts, DJ’s, dancers and drag queens spicing up the store on level 3. Special thanks to Upton Clue and the Birmingham Pride committee who worked very hard to bring together this year’s pride festival and parade. A great weekend was had by all.
