'We Are Family'
was launched by Liverpool Pride Festival in 2016 in acknowledgement of family and friends from the wider community who support the LGBT+ movement. The event allows the LGBT+ community to open the doors of the Pride Festival to all communities, friends and family, allowing them to join in the Pride celebrations through a range of activities and performances spreading a message of acceptance and equality. Michael Carey, from Liverpool Pride Festival, said:- "We are very excited to bring back We Are Family for its 2nd year. Last year’s event was a huge success, it was great to see residents from all over the Liverpool City Region come together for a celebration of all things LGBT+. In the 50th year since the legalisation of homosexuality it seems even more poignant to stand side by side with the wider community in celebration of the City’s diversity."

Liverpool Pride Festival 2017 offers a week long programme of activity which culminates with a 2 day event on Saturday, 29 July and Sunday, 30 July. The festival is returning for its 2nd year to Liverpool’s iconic St George’s Quarter and features the well established Liverpool Pride March on the Saturday. Liverpool Pride Festival is now a key highlight in the City’s Summer events programme, attracting more than 25,000 people each year to attend, take part and support the annual LGBT festival.
