Pride in the North (LGBT History Month Lecture)

Mark Nichols, Northern Pride

Date/Time: Tuesday 20 February 2018

The first Pride march in Britain was in London in 1972; in 1995 Pride on Tyne was established, initially with a low-key university-based celebration. In 2007 Northern Pride replaced it and brought the parade to the city to make it a truly public celebration. This lecture recounts its history, and the obstacles and challenges it faced.
