THE official line-up for Pride in Liverpool 2019 has been revealed.

With the stage set for Saturday, July 27, organisers from Pride in Liverpool are urging Merseyside's LGBT+ community to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising.

Speaking at the Pride in Liverpool launch on Thursday, July 4, organisers referenced the anniversary and recent homophobic attacks in Liverpool and said that it had "never been more important" to "come together and shout down hatred."

At the launch, the official line up was also revealed for the Barclays Stage including electropop singer Little Boots, X Factor's Saara Aalto, Emily Burns and Merseyside sass punk icons Queen Zee.

There will also be performances by the first and only UK ambassador of Rupaul’s Drag Race, The Vivienne, dance company KORRUPT and drag queen Minnie Cooper, as well as DJ sets from a host of local LGBT+ venues.

More artists were also announced for the 'Showcase Stage' in partnership with LIMF academy.

They include Manchester's Jess Kemp, Welsh singer Fyval and Merseyside's Adam Jay - the stage will also be opened by 18-year-old radio presenter and DJ Josef Hollywood.

Yaw Owusu, LIMF Music Curator, said: “The LIMF Academy is proud and excited to be working with Pride in Liverpool to showcase a diverse range of new and emerging music artists from Merseyside and beyond that reflect the ethos of both organisations."

There is also the chance for fans to get closer to the action by buying wristbands for the festival's new 'Guest Lounge' positioned next to the Barclays Stage.

LCR Pride Foundation co-founder John Bird said: “Collaboration is key to everything that we are aiming for through the organisation, so we are really proud to be working with LIMF Academy to be providing a platform for new and exciting talent.

“There are just over three weeks to go until Pride in Liverpool and we cannot wait to see it all come to life.

"Our city’s annual Pride festival is always a riot of fun, colour, love and celebration.

“But this year, in light of the anniversary of the Stonewall uprising and recent homophobic attacks that have taken place in our own city, it has never been more important to remember the true reason that we celebrate and to come together and shout down hatred.”

Guest Lounge tickets cost £22 and come with access to an exclusive area close to the stage, a private bar, dedicated toilet facilities and seating with cover and are available via:

Festival goers are also invited to March with Pride along the traditional route from St George’s Hall, finishing at Moorfields.
