Stockport Lib Dems get ready for the annual Pride parade

The Stockport Lib Dem group will be out in force this Sunday in Stockport Town Centre for the town’s annual Pride celebration and parade. Last year the Lib Dems were the largest political presence at Stockport Pride, and we plan to continue the trend this year.

The Lib Dem stall has activities such as face painting, Lib Dem LGBTQ+ literature and a ‘have your say’ ballot box that will allow attendees to make comments and suggestions for the council on LGBTQ+ issues.

Speaking ahead of the event, Cllr Mark Hunter, Leader of the Council, said: “The group are looking forward to celebrating the LGBTQ+ community in the borough. I want to thank my colleagues who have organised our stall and all those who are taking part in what will be a great day.”

Portfolio Lead for Communities, Culture and Sport Cllr Frankie Singleton said: “ In what is a particularly challenging time for LGBTQ+ community, we stand with them against all forms of discrimination.”
