LCR Pride Foundation says its annual March With Pride will return to Liverpool city centre this summer.

Part of the wider Pride in Liverpool festival, the March With Pride will take place on Saturday, July 27. A record 20,000 people took part in the event in 2023, up 5,000 on 2022, and organisers expect attendance to be bigger again this year.

That march was held jointly with KyivPride in solidarity with Ukraine and the theme, Shout It Loud, encouraged local LGBT+ people to be proud of their identities.

This year’s planned route will start at St George’s Hall Plateau at 12pm. The procession will then move through the city centre and the Pride Quarter before making its way to the waterfront.

LCR Pride Foundation is inviting LGBT+ individuals and allies alongside organisations and community groups to participate in the march. Registration is now open at

Andi Herring, chief executive of LCR Pride Foundation, said: “March With Pride continues to grow each year and this year promises to be no different.

“We look forward to welcoming thousands of LGBT+ people and allies to the city for what is looking to be our biggest year yet.

“Not only is it a chance for Liverpool City Region’s LGBT+ people to come together to celebrate one another, but it also gives us the opportunity to protest against the prejudices and inequalities that our communities face.

“In the last year, LGBT+ people and particularly trans members of our community have been attacked and undermined.

“However, we refuse to be silenced and our voices need to be heard more than ever before. This is our time to stand up and peacefully demonstrate that we are united against all forms of hate, discrimination and oppression.”
