May Bank Holiday Weekend

Birmingham is England’s second largest city and has the UK’s biggest free 2 day gay party weekend, attracting around 70,000 visitors. This year’s 2009 parade and party was a huge success due to the hot sunny weather and massive turnout of people eager to enjoy it. It started with a colourful parade from Victoria Square at 1pm on Saturday afternoon, 23rd May. The main stage then kicked off in the gay village at 3pm – 7pm with stars such as Sonia, Tara MacDonald, Coco Star, Kelly Pepper and S CLUB. Plus with 2 dance Arena’s, a Village Green & market area, fun fair, Cabaret Marquee and plenty of sexy boy eye-candy; it was a fantastic weekend of fun.

The Pride festival took place in Birmingham’s Gay Village, which covers the area around Hurst Street, Bromsgrove Street and Essex Street. The event had a green theme due to it being supported by the Environment Agency. Spreading a "pink meets green" message with a doubling of effort to encourage more people and businesses to be more environmentally friendly.

The other main sponsors were Birmingham-based GB Training Ltd, Birmingham City Council as well as the many clubs, bars and businesses in the village area. Special thanks to Birmingham's largest gay nightclub – the Nightingale Club.
