We're excited to announce that Ecommerce Pride has been approved to walk in the Manchester Pride Parade on the 26th August! 🏳️🌈 🏳️⚧️ We're looking for walkers to join us!
We're calling all members and non-members of Ecommerce Pride to find an appetite for who wants to make a trip up to sunny Manchester and send a few walkers for an amazing, fun-filled day out and walk in the Manchester Pride parade with us - representing the wider ecommerce community.
You don't have to be a member of the LGBTQ+ community to walk in the parade - allies are 100% welcome!
🏳️🌈 About Manchester Pride
Manchester Pride is one of the UK's leading LGBTQ+ charities. Their vision is a world where LGBTQ+ people are free to live and love without prejudice and our culture is universally celebrated. They are part of a global Pride movement celebrating LGBTQ+ equality and challenging discrimination. This year's parade theme is Queerly Beloved - love for ourselves and love for LGBTQ+ communities. For more information about Manchester Pride and the parade, please read more here.
It is not compulsory to make a donation to Ecommerce Pride to walk with us - however there is a cost to Ecommerce Pride for walking in the parade. Thankfully, all of our members' membership has helped subsidise a percentage of this - but we are asking where possible for companies to help support us further by making a donation under the following options, to help make the day possible:
Walking with Ecommerce Pride: Free
Ecommerce Pride Member Donation: £10pp
Non-Member Donation: £20pp
Deluxe Supporter (includes an Ecommerce Pride t-shirt and a day ticket to Manchester Pride): £110pp
Corporate Donation (includes 5 x Ecommerce Pride t-shirts and day tickets to Manchester Pride): £425 for 5 people
🏳️🌈 The Day
To all of those who join us on the day, we'll meet up beforehand and we'll be escorted to the parade together - and after the parade, we will meet up for a post-parade drink nearby.
If you're interested in joining us for the day, or want to book a Corporate Donation package - please let us know as soon as possible so we can get an idea of interest. We'd love to get as much support from the ecommerce community as possible for an amazing day!
