As Birmingham Pride fast approaches this Bank Holiday Weekend, preparations are well and truly underway to welcome visitors to the city. In fitting with the UK’s largest two-day LGBTQ+ celebrations, a cascade of rainbows have enveloped Brum.

Taking place over Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May, Birmingham Pride 2019 will officially kick off from Victoria Square with a parade that will snake its way through the city centre before entering the iconic Gay Quarter.
