Stockport Pride 2019

Stockport Pride 2019

On the last Sunday of July, Stockport Pride will be painting the town centre with rainbows as part of their festival. The one day event will be celebrating diversity and inclusion of the borough's lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans community.

Amongst those that may be spotted in Stockport's Historic Marketplace will be Detective Chief Inspector Ted Darling. He'll be taking a break from leading his CID team on their latest big case, in order to visit the festivities.

Ted Darling is an openly gay fictional character by crime author L M Krier. Some books from the series will be available on the day at the Stockport Libraries stall.

During the festival there will be a parade, music, performers, food, drink and lots of local charities.

The day is being held with thanks to support from The Ted Darling Crime Novels, Stockport Homes, Manchester Fertility, Adoption Counts, Mosscare St Vincent’s Housing Group and the Stockport Council Ward Flexibility Fund.

The Chairperson of Stockport Pride's organising committee, Stephen Bowyer, said that "we hope this year will be bigger and better than ever, with more done to tackle the discrimination faced by LGBT+ people on a regular basis in the borough."

Stockport Pride is free and open for all to attend in Stockport Marketplace from 11am until 6pm on Sunday 28th July, with plenty going on for the whole family.
