March with Pride 29Jul

Liverpool’s March with Pride is taking place on 29 July 2023 (full details here).

This year is especially poignant as we continue support for our Ukrainian LGBTQIA+ siblings. Russia’s Ukrainian occupation has rendered marching with pride there illegal.

Get involved

Liverpool Irish Festival and Irish Community Care are collaborating to March with Pride and invite other Irish services in the north (or from further afield, if you wish to travel) to march with us.


In order we can report on numbers; represent everyone on the banner and plan for the mustering, we need:
  • your organisation’s name
  • a lead contact email and telephone number
  • company logo (preferably a .png file, without a background), and
  • estimated/planned number of ‘marchers’.
Organisations that want representing on our shared banner must register with us by 9am on Mon 19 July 2023 (🏳️‍🌈 Click here to register.🏳️‍🌈 ) so we have time to turn around a banner. We will register our collective with LCR Pride.

Individuals and non-affiliated groups

You don’t have to be Irish or of Irish extraction to march with us; friends are actively encouraged.  Individuals and non-affiliated groups (e.g., those not formally registering their organisation) are free to register their interest here -especially if there are large numbers- or you can turn up on the day. Either way, you’ll be made welcome. Our banner will celebrate our collective as Irish services supporting March with Pride. 🏳️‍🌈 Click here to register.🏳️‍🌈  

What happens next?

When you register with our collective of Irish Services, we’ll produce a banner to march behind. We’ll email all registrants with details of our mustering site number, which will be provided close to the day after we have completed our group registration with LCR Pride. If you have any questions ahead of or after registering, you can contact Emma on [email protected].

Details for the day

Mustering begins at 10.30am, on the plateau at St George’s Hall (Lime Street, Liverpool) and we need everyone to be present behind our banner by 11.50am to start marching at midday. We recommend dressing for fun; in bright and colourful weather appropriate ways! Bring water, sun screen and umbrellas!
