    Default Liverpool Gay Pride 2010

    What a great day ! The weather was kind, everyone was in a happy mood, and a good time was had by all

    Good atmosphere, lots of laughs, great entertainment. Glad to see a big turn out and the event was well supported.

    It was really good. I wish we could have stayed until the end ! It started at 12.30 pm. with a parade. We had to head home for 6.pm though (for visitors arriving).
    I think the festivities have just finished as we speak - (9.30pm.) I bet the atmosphere was even better in the evening. It will be buzzing around Dale st late tonight !

    To celebrate their culture I guess - like, for example, the Orange Lodge do on the 12th July.

    Brilliant pics lindy and Howie, what a great day in the history of our city and your photos are testimony to what we've always known - that Liverpool is as tolerant as anywhere else is in Britain, despite what some would have us believe.

    If anyone has a problem with Pride then you're not fully appreciating why events like Pride started in the first place. It's just like the Irish celebrating Saint Paddy's Day, except with more mascara .

    What a Gay Day!!! In the nicest possible sense.

    It was in town? ****! I thought it was in the fruit market on Edge Lane and wondered why no one showed up.

    I guess I'm the only one with such a pathetic narrow-minded outlook but oh well, I'll live with the shame.

    I'm looking forward to the Albanian, Fatties, Gingers and Catholic Priests Pride Marches next year

    It is a law of nature
    at home as on the veldt
    much that's fascinating
    takes place below the belt

    Each and every powerful crew
    attracts their hangers-on
    each pride has it's hyenas too
    as each anagrammatist has loins

    I would say the reasons behind Gay pride day go a lot deeper than we think .
    Remember it was once illegal to be homosexual , people were put into prison for it , gay sex was outlawed , people were banished from home and community , careers were ruined , lives destroyed , it was seen as a mental illness by some .
    Gay pride is not only a celebration , but also a reminder of how times have changed , people are no longer prepared to be percecuted for their sexuality , thus the very colourful parades they now have .
    I do seem remember the fella from 'Right said fred' attempt one in Russia though , and the police battered him . Not good . Brilliant pics Lindy .

    Well, I am glad that society has moved on, and having gay friends it is good that they can mix, but even they say the over the top March is questionable whether its sending a postive message out. Do all homosexuals dress up like women and camp it up? Isn't the point that they can intergrate with everyone?

    Try so hard to stop sterotypes then a March like this happens.

    Sorry if I sound like a misery, and I'm sure everyone had a great day, but its hardly family fun entertainment.

    Totally agree with ya, Kid.

    It would make more sense to just have a sex pride festival where everyone can mix

    I don't expect that all gay men do camp it up and dress in women's clothing ! It's a celebration of Gayness , and freedom of expression for many .
    I suspect that more 'straight men' do that sort of thing in the confines of their bedroom .
