Wigan Pride 2022: 19 pictures as rainbows fill the streets and equality and diversity is celebrated
The streets of Wigan were given a splash of colour over the weekend as the town's Pride event celebrated equality and diversity.
The highly-anticipated summer event included a community parade followed by a day of live music and inspirational speeches.
Noughties pop sensation the Cheeky Girls topped the bill on the Unity Stage, along with a host of new artists performing at the event for the first time.
Council-led youth group BYOU managed the Believe Stage on Believe Square, where there were acoustic sets from up-and-coming local talent.
People were invited to dress in rainbow colours or bright yellow – the theme colour for this year, which represents energy and optimism.
