Twenty five years of Manch­ester Pride was cel­e­brated with the an­nual Big Week­end over the bank hol­i­day.

‘De­vo­tion’ was the theme for the Manch­ester Pride Pa­rade, and the Cathe­dral also cel­e­brated be­ing an allinclu­sive Cathe­dral.

Manch­ester Cathe­dral has strong LGBT links, and host a bian­nual LGBT cel­e­bra­tion.

The Very Rev Rogers Goven­der, Dean of Manch­ester, said: “I am pleased to sup­port the LGBT com­mu­nity on their spe­cial 25th an­niver­sary. As a Cathe­dral that takes in­clu­siv­ity se­ri­ously we ex­tend our warm good wishes to LGBT and wish them well in the years ahead.

“In fly­ing the Rain­bow flag at the Cathe­dral we ex­press our sol­i­dar­ity and prayers. May the theme of De­vo­tion deepen our love for God who loves all peo­ple and af­firms our com­mon hu­man­ity!”
