Queer+ Friends of Bradley Manning is all set for Manchester Pride which is taking place next Saturday (24th August)!
Information coming from Manchester Pride organisers is a little sparse at the moment but we’ll be meeting somewhere along Liverpool Road. As soon as we arrive we’ll lay out the banner and the Bradley Manning placards so that you can spot us along the pre-march lineup. Hopefully we’ll get more specific details about are march start point in the next few days – as soon as I get that information I’ll update this post.
For those travelling from London we’ll be on the following trains (we booked our tickets from Virgin – at the moment it’s £53 return, National Express coaches are £24):
Depart: 06:36 London Euston
Arrive 08:49 Manchester Piccadilly
Meeting at Liverpool Road from 11am, Castlefield (enter via Water Street not Deansgate). The march itself begins at 1pm.
Depart: 16:55 Manchester Piccadilly
Arrive: 19:04 London Euston
We’ll be taking lots of flyers and stickers to hand out along the route and we’ll have the banner and placards as well.
Hope to see you next Saturday!
