Leeds Pride and Absolute Media partner up for 2017

Leeds Pride have announced that Absolute Media will be our official Social Media and Communications Partner for Leeds Pride 2017. Leeds Pride and Absolute Media will work together to promote this year's celebrations, helping to make the 2017 event the biggest yet. 

Leeds Pride is Yorkshire's biggest celebration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* life. Running since 2006 and is now the largest Pride in the UK to still be a completely free event with over 40,000 people attending over the weekend. It is also considered the UK's friendliest Pride. The celebrations are run by a skilled team of volunteers with close links to local Leeds LGB&T community and the event is funded through community fundraising, grant funding and sponsorship agreements with national brands such as First Direct, Sainsbury's and ASDA.

Absolute Media are experts in offering services in social media, web design, event management, design and print. They also own a range of established publications across the country including Leeds City Dweller Magazine, Leeds City Magazine, Leeds Student Magazine, Manchester Mag and What's On Bradford. This partnership will see Absolute Media offer a strategic communications plan to maximise publicity for the event. 

Speaking about the partnership, the Directors of Leeds Pride said ‘We are excited to have Absolute Media on board with Leeds Pride 2017. This partnership will help us to develop our online and social media reach not only across Leeds and Yorkshire but nationally and internationally.’ 

Leeds Pride 2017 will take place on the 5th and 6th August so make sure you save the date. The main event on the Sunday will include 2 hours of entertainment in Millennium Square, a parade through the city centre with over 60 floats and 5 hours of entertainment on Lower Briggate to finish off an incredible weekend. 

More information will be announced when Leeds Pride 2017 is launched at the annual Leeds LGBT awards ceremony The Leeds Owlies on the 21st February.
