I've just learned that the Organisers of Liverpool Pride have announced the line up to play the Acoustic Stage at Liverpool’s first ever Pride Festival, which takes place in and around the Dale Street area of Liverpool on Saturday 7th August. Ian McNabb, former leader and main songwriter in the Icicle Works, will be headlining a very full line-up. You'll find a lot more detail here.
If you combine the festival with a pub crawl, there are plenty of great pubs in the area, some of which are listed in my Dale Street pub crawl; I think you can expect them to be busy on the day.
And before anyone asks the predictable question: no, you don't have to LGBT.
