Leeds Pride Needs You!


The Pride event is free for all to attend, and will feature headlining sets from local-lad and POP IDOL sensation GARETH GATES, as well as BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT favourites, boy band THE MEND.

TOM DOYLE, chair of LEEDS PRIDE, said: “Leeds Pride is set to be bigger and better than ever before this year. We are extremely lucky to be able to host such a fantastic event for free – but we need the help of the public in the form of volunteers.

Volunteering is a fantastic way both to give back and build up skills that will help your personal and professional development. Last year saw some truly brilliant and selfless individuals give up a few hours of their time to help ensure the event ran smoothly – and we are looking to repeat that again for 2012.

For more information on how to volunteer for the LEEDS PRIDE parade this year, please contact Tom Doyle on: t.doyle@mesmac.co.uk.


LEEDS PRIDE takes place on Sunday 5 August and is a free event and open to the public. The event has brought an estimated £1.5 million to the city’s economy and around 23,000 visitors.

THE MEND will join other fantastic announced acts such as Leeds’ very own renowned drag host BROWNE SUGA, rising stars THE BON BONZ, KELLY WILDE, new gay boy band FTW (FOR THE WIN) and many more. The event will be hosted by the fabulous drag act PEGGY WESSEX.
