Sheffield's First Gay Pride


An array of stars will be making their way to Sheffield based Cemetery Park on Saturday June 7 after it was announced that it would play host to South Yorkshire's first annual gay pride event.

Starting at midday, Cemetery Park off Montague Street, Sharrow (close to Ecclesall Road), hosts the event featuring live music, a dance tent, The Other stage which is a women's performance space as well as a community area and stalls.

Howard Culley, Managing Partner from Irwin Mitchell Solicitors who are sponsoring the community tent said: we are delighted to have the opportunity to support South Yorkshire Pride, following our involvement in previous events such as Birmingham Pride and the Gay and Lesbian Awards.

The organisers hope that by hosting the event it will help to promote equality, celebrate diversity, eliminate discrimination and raise awareness for the LGBT community.

A special shuttle bus service to the site is being provided from stand B2 of Sheffield Interchange, from 11:30am until 1:30pm, running every ten minutes.
