Liverpool pride 2011
Bigger and better
On 6th August 2011 Liverpool was definitely the place to be for the wonderful Pride march and Summer Of Love event. Photographers from The Fab Collective captured the colourful spirit of the occasion and a broad selection of the beautiful people who, in their multifarious costumes and makeovers, brought a genuine rainbow sparkle to the day.
The atmosphere amongst the crowd was warm and celebratory and the Radio City main stage delivered a stellar line-up of talent to a buoyant crowd of proud Scousers and visitors from all over Europe, united in celebrating Pride. The day was a massive success for the city and is testimony to the ability of its people to create a unique atmosphere celebrating diversity.
The date of the festival, chosen by the community, occurs on the anniversary of the death of Michael Causer; a young gay man who was murdered in 2008. His death united the community and Liverpool city council, leading to the revival of the festival. This event will develop and become a key date in the free music festival calendar in Europe, the success of this has lead to the approval of Stanley Street being designated the city’s gay quarter.
Enjoy the sparkle of the crowd, the wonderful performers, the rainbow colours of the costumes and the glitter and glam of Pride as captured by The Fab Collective
