MANCHESTER PRIDE PARADE: THE MOVIE
MANCHESTER PRIDE IS ONE OF THE UK’S LEADING LBGTQ+ CHARITIES. EVERY SUMMER THEY CELEBRATE LIFE AND CREATE OPPORTUNITIES WITH A 4-DAY EVENT ATTENDED BY NEARLY 150,000 PEOPLE. WHEN 2020 HIT HARD, WE STEPPED IN TO KEEP THE PARADE GOING, CREATING A 15-MINUTE VIDEO THAT OPENED ITS FIRST ONLINE-ONLY INCARNATION.
WHO ARE THEY?
Every August bank holiday, Manchester Pride celebrate their annual pride festival, drawing in hundreds of thousands of people. This year was set to be no different, but 2020 had other plans.
WHAT DID WE DO?
To celebrate this year, we worked with Pride to produce this 15 minute short film to play at their alternative, virtual festival. The video was used to open the weekend, and to act as a replacement for the Parade - one of the centrepieces of the event.
WHAT WE CREATED
We created this 15 minute short film that explored how far LGBT+ rights have come in Britain over the last 50 years, drawing on archive footage as well as footage captured by us at previous pride events.
