Chester Pride to host two events this month as it is nominated for national diversity award

CHESTER Pride will be holding two events this May and have been nominated for the Community Organisation Award at the National Diversity Awards.

This May, Chester Pride brings two special events to the city to celebrate International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.

The Chester Pride Family Fun Day will take place this Saturday, May 11, in Grosvenor Park, and will include crafts, a cook along, sporting activities, performers from Chester Live, story time, stalls, the Pride in Past exhibition, the rainbow fire engine, Nordic walking and much more.

It is a free event from 12-4pm and everyone is welcome. Chester Pride events are a great opportunity for parents and caregivers to begin early conversations with children about diversity.

The Chester Pride Drag Extravaganza is taking place Friday, May 18, between 7pm and 10:30pm, at St Mary’s Creative Centre and will be a fun evening of entertainment not to be missed.

Hosted by Miss Annabelle Lecter and featuring experienced and new upcoming drag acts from across the country. Tickets are £5 in advance from www.chesterpride.co.uk or £7 on the door.

Chester Pride has been running for six years and is a registered charity run by volunteers.

The Chester Pride festival, a celebration of diversity and support for the LGBT+ community, has become a staple event in the Chester calendar and the 2017 event was attended by over 10,000 people.

The event has been praised for its mixture of community spirit, fun and awareness raising and has been nominated for the Community Organisation Award at the National Diversity Awards.
