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!”
