The University will have a stand at the Whitworth Street entrance to the Sackville Street Building during the Pride Parade on Saturday, 27 August. Sackville Street Building will also be flying the Rainbow Flag – the international symbol of the gay pride movement – and displaying a banner of support for the 21st Manchester Pride festival throughout the August Bank Holiday weekend.
