Now the Rainbow Circus has been packed away, Liverpool Pride wants you to pick the theme for 2011.
You can also be in with a chance to win one of two sets of family tickets to see Pamela Anderson in Aladdin! In August 2010, Liverpool Pride rolled onto the scene with its debut, the Rainbow Circus, the theme you picked back when the main stage was just a twinkle in our eye.
In September, organisers asked for your ideas and received nearly 150 suggestions.
They have now managed to group these into our four theme suggestions for next year: Film Noir, All At Sea, Hollywood Glamour and the Summer of Love.
How to take part
This year you can vote online for your favourite option and enter yourself into a competition to win a set of family tickets for you and three of your friends and family to see the Pamela Anderson in this year’s must see performance of Aladdin at the Empire Theatre.
Liverpool Pride’s fabulous volunteers will also be out and about on the city’s gay scene over the next few weekends asking for your choice! Make sure you keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter to see where they’ll be.
About the Themes
Film Noir: Elegant with a touch of mystery, we may have come a long way from gay life being in dark smoke filled rooms, but here is a homage to the era of femme fatales and mysterious men.
All at Sea: High camp on the high seas, dozens of you suggested a theme to celebrate our city’s waterfront nautical heritage and, oh yes, those cute sailor outfits.
Hollywood Glamour: In an age of austerity we can bring some of that red carpet glitz as we bring out the bling, and worship our icons.
The Summer of Love: Want to be wearing flowers in your hair? Pride can celebrate what it’s really about - who do we love, and this love dares to speak its name. You can make it either a hippy-dippy ‘60’s look or a tribute to the dayglo ‘90’s – which was your Summer of Love?
James Davies of Liverpool Pride says: “It’s really important to us that we put on a festival that’s visible and inclusive and everyone can feel a part of.
“Last year we talked to more than 500 people who helped choose what became our Rainbow Circus. We can’t wait to see what you pick this year!”
What will the theme be used for? The theme will be used to design our posters, flyers and brochure – you can even take part by dressing up on the day like thousands of you did this summer. Or if you think you’ve got what it takes to join the design team you can get involved yourself.
