Hundreds of Merseyside housing staff and customers from the Homes for Everyone group celebrated the fourth Liverpool Pride to promote diversity in the sector.
Homes for Everyone, made up of 17 housing associations across Merseyside and supported by Liverpool City Council, joined around 6,000 people parading through the city centre.
This year’s Pride theme was ‘Holding Out for a Hero’ with a parade of colourful superhero costumes. Many housing staff marched in costume – there were Supermen, Wonderwomen, X-Men, and even a Super Mario.

The group is made up of: Riverside, Pierhead Housing, One Vision Housing, Magenta Living, Your Housing Group, Steve Biko Housing, Knowsley Housing Trust, Plus Dane Group, Sanctuary Housing, The Regenda Group, Venture Housing, Pine Court Housing, Liverpool Mutual Homes, South Liverpool Homes Cobalt, Symphony Housing Group, Helena Partnerships, Villages Housing and Liverpool City Council.
