Deputy Lord Mayor marches with pride
25 August 2016The Deputy Lord Mayor of Chester is helping to lead the way in celebrating equality, diversity and support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in the region.
The Deputy Lord Mayor Councillor Razia Daniels and the Deputy Lord Mayor’s Consort Mr Stephen Daniels joined the Lord Mayor of Liverpool Councillor Roz Gladden, on the steps of St George’s Hall for the opening ceremony of Liverpool Pride, and led the march through the city.
This was the first year that neighbouring civic dignitaries had headed up the march as a sign of unity and solidarity with the LBGT community.
Councillor Daniels said: “It was great to see so many mayors from across the region giving their support and it was an honour to take part.
“I’m now really looking forward to Chester Pride and I hope as many residents and visitors as possible will join in and give their support.”
The event starts with a colourful walking parade through the city centre leaving from Castle Square at noon and completing a circuit of the city centre before making its way back to the main site.
