Manchester Pride 2022 was an incredible showstopper. Thousands lined the streets in the August Bank Holiday sunshine to join in the weekend of celebration in Manchester City centre.

Our photographer Jack Stocker was among the crowds and captured the joy of the event with some great images for Northern Soul, as our gallery below shows. 

The theme for 2022’s parade was March For Peace with the importance of peace in a world where all LGBTQ+ people are free to live and love without prejudice at its heart.
