We were delighted that Birmingham Pride chose SIFA Fireside as one of three charities it supported at this year’s festival, which took place in Birmingham’s Gay Village on 28th & 29th May 2016. Birmingham Pride is one of the biggest annual LGBT festivals in the UK, held every year over the Spring Bank Holiday. This year marks 20 years of Birmingham Pride and was set to be the biggest and best festival to date.
The weekend included the famous Carnival parade, which took a high profile route around Birmingham city centre. This year we had our own float and stall where people could come and find out more about who we are, what we do and how they can help our clients. As well as the Carnival Parade, there were some famous acts due to perform at the event including Erasure’s Andy Bell, Katy B, Fleur East, Liberty X, and DJ Fresh.
The organisers have stated that any surplus generated by ticket sales will be divided between SIFA Fireside, St Basil’s and Birmingham LGBT. Please see their website for more information
