A small demonstration took place in Manchester’s Gay Village last Saturday to reclaim Pride, the annual LGBT festival.

The simple demand was to ask the Pride Board what they do with Pride’s money. Just £36,100—or 3.7 percent—went to charity or good causes in 2012 and no explanation was given for the rest.
