Here are some of the best moments from Leeds Pride 2018

Pride came to Leeds and we’re so happy about it


Pride takes place annually in accordance with LGBT History Month. It's an occasion to celebrate diversity as well as allow an opportunity for the LGBTQ+ community to fight the social stigma and liberate themselves. How else would we celebrate here in Leeds other than having a parade of 120 floats, covering ourselves in glitter and wearing rainbow EVERYTHING?

The parade began in Millennium Square and finished on Lower Briggate. Everything in between was madness.

It's estimated that around 50,000 people attended Pride yesterday, and that is almost 1/10 of the population of Leeds. The support for Pride gets bigger every year, and don't think we haven't noticed…

From small gestures like lil' Stuart

to covering everything in rainbow confetti.

Even the doggos were in the pride spirit:

The buildings were decorated…

and Zebra Crossings were painted.

The city was dowsed in colour and everything looked so much better, obviously. It was also cool to see that Uber did a little nod to Pride by highlighting your route in rainbow colours.

Even the popo had some fun.

It was, pardon the pun, a proud moment for us in Leeds to see our city embracing the event. Only 364 days until the next one.
