Marcus Collins to headline Liverpool Pride 2012By Bethan Hockey
As this year's Liverpool Pride draws ever closer. organisers have announced that this years headline act will be X Factor finalist Marcus Collins.
Liverpool Pride 2012 will take place at Liverpool’s iconic pier-head and throughout the Stanley Street Gay Quarter. In addition to this, there will be a weekend of cultural events taking place at some of Liverpool’s most influential arts and cultural establishments. The festival’s ‘Nautical but Nice’ theme, chosen in a ballot by 700 members of the local LGBT community, gives a nod to the city’s commemoration of the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, whilst at the same time, celebrating the city’s rich maritime history and taking advantage of the main festival site, which sits on the banks of the River Mersey.
We caught up with Zoran Blackie, Chair of Liverpool Pride to find out what is in store.
