Seann Miley Moore

  • Shot to fame on the 2015 series of the X-Factor with his performances of David Bowie’s ‘Life on Mars’ and ‘California Dreaming’ by the The Mamas & The Papas.

Pride in Hull kick-starts the Hull UK City of Culture 2017 LGBT 50 programme – a series of events celebrating LGBT culture across the arts to mark the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality. To coincide with this, Pride in Hull has also been named ‘UK Pride’ by the UK Pride Organisers Network (UKPON).

Pride in Hull is a free and unticketed event taking place in Queen’s Gardens on Saturday 22 July. For more information about Pride in Hull, visit www.prideinhull.co.uk.

“We’re so excited to be welcoming Cleopatra to our stage. This year we’re all about representing the five decades since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality and anyone who grew up in the 90s will be singing along to their hits! “Seann Miley Moore was such a highlight of last year’s Pride in Hull, that we wanted to invite him back in this extra special year for our event, our city and the wider LGBT community.”
