Well Liverpool City Region Pride is over for another year, New Beginnings attending for the 5th year running and a fabulous time was had by all.
The weather didn’t dampen our spirits, the rain may have washed off our face paint and soaked our hair, but we still marched proudly and celebrated being unique and diverse. For some of our New Beginnings young people this was their first ever Pride attendance.
There was an estimated 5000 people who marched this year and I think I can say on behalf of all our young people and adults, we were extremely proud to have contributed to that record number of people.
New Beginnings were joined by Sefton Council’s Chief Executive – Dwayne Johnson and one of our South Locality Managers Amanda Hughes as well as colleagues from Sefton@Work and staff from SWACA (Sefton Women’s and Children’s Aid). It was great to have colleagues from across Sefton joining us for the March.
This year there was a dedicated Youth Space which was sponsored by The Michael Causer foundation, we at New Beginnings were honoured to be asked to be a part of what was a great space for our young people to enjoy.
We were also proudly joined by our local voluntary organisation T.S Starling (Sefton Sea Cadets) for the 2nd year running. MYA SPACE came and joined us for the their first year and put on some amazing performances in the Youth Space.
We are already looking forward to LCR Pride 2020 and we are also hoping for another big representation from Sefton. It is also Borough of Culture next year in Sefton, keep your eyes peeled for what could be a very special Pride March next year!!
