A Non-Scene Guide to Liverpool Pride
We’re here, we’re queer and we’re proud. Pride is both a protest and a celebration for LGBTQ+ folks. That means this weekend should be a time for all of us to live our best queer lives.
So while the pop party of the main stage and the the gay scene’s nightclubs might not be to everyone’s fancy, we’re lucky there is an exciting alternative queer scene right here in our city.
Here’s our round-up to the best non-scene events taking place at this year’s Pride in Liverpool weekend.
Pride X Tate: Liverpool Tate celebrates Pride weekend by staying open late with talks, workshop, music and food. There will also be FREE enter to the Keith Haring exhibition.
