Pride Theme Announced: Come As You Are

Pride Theme Announced: Come As You Are

Liverpool Pride is back but bigger and better.

As well as revealing their fresh brand, last the team behind the weekend festival announced plans to establish a year-round programme of events and campaigns throughout the City Region, under the name LCR Pride Foundation.

The Queer Collective team joined hundreds of guests - partners and sponsors of Pride - at Love Lane Brewery, for the launch of this year’s programme. The big reveal was this year’s theme: Come As You Are.

 The theme calls to all people, regardless of where they are from or how they identify, to take pride in their identity and come together in the spirit of friendship, love and respect.

LCR Pride Foundation’s Co-Chair John Bird said: “At a time when the LGBT+ community is increasingly misunderstood, marred by misconceptions and targeted with hate, LCR Pride Foundation wants the world to know that the Liverpool City Region is taking a stand. No matter where you are from or how you identify, we are open to all and you are welcome here, Just Come As You Are!”
