"Despite Christian protestors heckling the Parade yesterday, religious groups still remain a key element of Pride 2011.
Many have attended the festival for years, practically since it’s creation in 1990, and will not be leaving any time soon.
The Pride Expo area is littered with medical and ethical support groups there to help and advise LGBT members who need it.
Regular attendees include the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) and The Manchester and Warrington Quakers."
