LGBTory, the Conservative Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans group, for the second year running took part in the celebrations of Manchester Pride - Manchester’s annual Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) festival, held over the August bank holiday weekend. Not only did they have a stall throughout the whole of the Pride ‘Big Weekend’, the group also walked in the parade, with the now familiar rainbow tree logo and the slogan “Conservative and Proud”. Their efforts were to showcase the Conservatives as a Party interested in LGBT issues and in putting an end to homophobia and promoting equal rights for all, no matter what their sexual or gender identity.
