Story

Knowsley’s first-ever Pride event will be held in Huyton this summer, in a day of celebration and awareness for residents, families, local organisations and the LGBTQ+ community.

Knowsley Pride ‘Rainbow in the Park’ will take place in Court Hey Park, Huyton on Friday 2 August 2024 and welcomes people of all ages to enjoy the festivities.

It has been spearheaded by charitable organisation, One Knowsley and the Knowsley Pride Steering Group with funding from the Michael Causer Foundation, and follows a series of Pride events for the city, including LCR Foundation’s ‘Pride in Liverpool’ celebrations on Saturday 27 July.

The day has been chosen to commemorate the anniversary of the death of Michael Causer, who was tragically murdered in Knowsley on 2 August 2008, and the day will culminate in the 16th annual vigil for the Whiston-born teen, which we invite all the community to attend.

Last year, One Knowsley took over the running of the Michael Causer Foundation, originally set up by Michael’s parents and Merseyside’s LGBTQ+ community to provide support, education, motivation and accommodation for young LGBTQ+ people in Merseyside.

Members of the LGBTQ+ arts and creative community are being invited to apply for community grants that will support various commissions providing family-friendly activities and sessions for Knowsley Pride that inspire connections and build understanding around inclusivity and equality.
