Gay Star News will be a media partner of Leeds Pride 2018.

Now in its 12th year, Leeds Pride has become a staple date in the UK pride season calendar – attracting big names such as Heather Small, Sean Miley Moore, Sonia and more.

This year, we’re proud to be adding Leeds Pride, landing on 5 August 2018, to the annual road trip!

Every year, Gay Star News travels across the UK to gift pride goers with 20,000 jam-packed exclusive pride bags, attending major prides including Birmingham, London, Bristol, Glasgow and Manchester.

Liaqat Ali, director of Leeds Pride, said: ‘Leeds Pride has is one of the biggest events in the city and unlike many other larger pride events, it’s still completely free.

We are really looking forward to working with Gay Star News and hopefully attracting more people from around the country to our fantastic city’.

Last year’s pride bags included treats from Snickers, Pink Lady and much more with 2018’s selection of goodies set to be GSN’s best haul ever!

Tris Reid-Smith, Editor-in-chief of Gay Star News, said: ‘We are looking forward to partnering with Leeds Pride for the first time this year. It’s an important event for the whole region.

Our partnership will showcase Leeds Pride to a new, diverse audience and we hope it will lead to even more people supporting it.’
