Around 2,000 people will leave Castle Gate at 11:30 today to march through the city to the Lace Market, where performers will entertain up to 6,000 people.

Leigh Ellis, Chairman of the Nottingham Pride Committee, says,

At a time when homophobic hate crime is still prevalent on our streets and homophobic bullying in schools is not tackled as well as it should be, we need to see more action. By being visible, loud and proud, we will march through the city as one united rainbow of colour.
