Pride parade in Liverpool

The mother of a teenager from Merseyside who was murdered five years ago led today's Gay Pride in Liverpool.

18 year old Michael Causer was attacked in Huyton in 2008. His family believe it was because he was gay. Tens of thousands turned out for the parade. The annual event showcases the city's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender culture.
