Education = Equality

The streets of Manchester were flooded with a sea of rainbow-clad people celebrating unity over the weekend for the city’s 2017 Pride parade.

This year’s event was themed “Class of 2017,” with the graduation-inspired party designed to place emphasis on the fact that education is the best way to create lasting acceptance, unity and change.

After the terrorist attack at Ariana Grande’s Manchester Arena concert earlier this year, the city felt it was more important than ever to join together in celebrations of unity and love.
