Manchester Pride is offering grants of up to £500 to individuals and organisations. The aim is to help ‘raise the quality and diversity of events’ that take place during Pride 2009 this summer.
The total pot of money available is £7,000. Further details and the application form can be found here. The deadline for applications is 2 March.
This would seem to be a response to the protests that happened last year and we look forward to seeing who and what is chosen to receive the cash. However, getting into bed with the current organisers of Manchester Pride (eek) could be a step too far for some.
