The annual gay pride celebrations have been and gone for the vibrant city of Manchester, this year attracting larger crowds than ever before. Saturday 27th August saw tens of thousands flood the streets of Manchester to witness the yearly spectacle.
Floats included national businesses like the National Health Service (NHS), Asda, Sainsbury’s and even Coronation Street – but one attracted more widespread attention than most.
The LGBT section of the Conservative Party stood strong in force to represent their political party and those within it, despite many waves of booing and heckling from the crowds of Manchester. Former MP and reality star Edwina Currie made a full appearance with the ‘LGBTory’ group, waving, hugging, kissing and even taking drinks from bystanders.
