Manchester Pride 27 August – University Collaboration
Once again, the University will be participating in Manchester Pride. This year it will be slightly different though! In collaboration with Manchester Metropolitan University; Royal Northern College of Music; The University of Salford and The University of Law we will have a joint entry of ‘Higher Education in the North West.
There will be a small number of walking spaces available, but there will be a number of UoM cheering points along the route.
We’d like to see as many staff and students as possible supporting the entry and showing us as a fully inclusive place to work and study for our LGBT+ colleagues, allies and intersections of this community too.
