The town centre is going to be rainbow coloured as Oldham Pride returns this weekend.
This year’s event takes place on Saturday, July 25 and the organisers are promising it will be bigger than ever.
Councillor Jim McMahon, Leader of Oldham Council, said: “Oldham Pride is now in its second decade and in that time the event has grown into one of the biggest dates on the town centre’s calendar.
“It continues to go from strength to strength and this year’s line-up includes some local acts.
“As well as providing an entertaining day Oldham Pride has an important message to reinforce about how homophobia, transphobia and biphobia are still issues that need to be addressed and challenged daily.”
The day starts at 11.30am followed by a spectacular and colourful parade to Gallery Oldham where top Manchester drag queens Misty Chance and Danny Beard will host an afternoon of fun featuring live entertainment, stalls, children's events and a licensed bar.
This is a free, fun-filled event open to everyone so please come along and show your support and help make Oldham Pride the best one yet.
