Pride And No Prejudice For West Yorkshire Playhouse

On Sunday 6 August a 50 strong troupe from West Yorkshire Playhouse will march hand in hand at the Leeds Pride celebrations. Adorned with the vibrant colours of the rainbow, the team from the Playhouse will be flying their flags high for the generous and warm spirited event, which has made the City of Leeds a more colourful place since 2006.

Marching with our own very own Playhouse Queen, members of staff, artists and the community who work alongside the Playhouse will take part in the procession.

West Yorkshire Playhouse Artistic Director James Brining said: "We are thrilled to join others across the city in celebrating the vibrancy and voices of LGBTQ+ people by marching at Leeds Pride Parade this year.

"This season, we're collaborating with some of the best LGBTQ+ artists in the country to tell incredible stories for all ages. Acceptance, equality and empowerment are central to our values both on and off the Playhouse's stages and we are proud to be a home for LGBTQ+ artists and audiences from Yorkshire and beyond."

Running since 2006, Leeds Pride is the largest Pride event in the UK to still be a completely free with over 40,000 people attending over the weekend. In total there will be over 60 floats on parade culminating in an afternoon of vibrant entertainment on the main stage in Millennium Square.
