Liverpool’s LGBT+ area given rebrand

TEN years after becoming the UK’s first formally recognised LGBT+ area, the Stanley Street Quarter will be rebranded as the Pride Quarter.

The Pride Quarter will bring together a large number of the city’s LGBT+ venues, located in and around Victoria Street, Dale Street and Tithebarn Street, continuing the area’s development to welcome more people and better encompass its diverse leisure and hospitality offerings.

The 13 LGBT+ venues located in the quarter will come together under its new banner for the ‘Pride Quarter Indoor Festival’ on Saturday 31st July 2021, to mark its establishment and celebrate what would have been Pride in Liverpool.

A dedicated LGBT+ page on the Visit Liverpool website will also be launched, cementing the Pride Quarter as a destination in the city and connecting and highlighting the diverse LGBT+ nightlife, hospitality and events offering in other areas of the city.

Speaking of its support for the new Pride Quarter, LCR Pride Foundation CEO, Andi Herring, said: “We are committed working with venues and city partners to contribute to the wider regeneration of Liverpool City Centre and support the provision and promotion of safe spaces for LGBT+ people in the Pride Quarter and beyond.”

Chris Brown, director of Marketing Liverpool, said: “We’re very pleased to support the fantastic work of LCR Pride Foundation again. We’ve recently created a new, expanded LGBT+ landing page on VisitLiverpool.com, and hope to welcome more visitors as restrictions ease and the city region opens up more.”
