Danielle Gibson, Chair of Middlesbrough Community Pride, says: “Our plan to hold these events, as a Festival, celebrating our LGBT community, their families and friends and promoting inclusion, equality and diversity, are now coming to fruition. With the support of our sponsors, Teesside University, Middlesbrough Council, Middlesbrough College, Teesside Philanthropic foundation, Fabrick Housing and Cleveland Police.”
