Manchester Pride 2009 raises £135,000 for good causes

Manchester Pride 2009 has raised £135,000 for good causes.

It’s the highest figure for a number of years, but not if you take into account inflation (which is about 30% over a decade). Allowing for inflation it is about the same as was raised in 2000 from the free and much-smaller GayFest and less than was raised in the years from 2003 to 2006.

Pride security try to prevent filming in a public place / Candlelit Vigil (video)
