FULL details of next week's Pride Glasgow have been unveiled by organisers, with the weekend's march marking the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. 

The festival, which begins on Thursday, August 15, will run four days of events across the city welcoming high-profile performers. 

A dozen different venues will host this range of shows, parties and other events, with family-friendly and free gatherings happening alongside after-hours celebrations. 

The weekend's march itself will take place on Saturday, August 17, and will begin just south of the River Clyde at Clyde Place at around 11.30am, before making its way through the city and into George Square. 

The expected 5,000 revellers will then make their way along the Broomielaw before dispersing.

Later that day The Ferry will host an event featuring tribute acts such as Ariana Grande and drags acts, and co-hosted by Glasgow’s resident glam, goth queen, CarrieAnn Crow. 

A family day at The Barrowlands, featuring Got Soul Choir, X Factor’s Nicholas McDonald, Edward Reid, Britain’s Got Talent’s Kerr James and Scottish band Layaway, will run alongside this. 

That same evening, The Barrowlands Ballroom will be transformed into ‘A Night at Studio 54’, which was once New York’s most famous nightclub, attended by celebrities, and most importantly, the first place where trans people we were welcomed in the 70s.

All told, the four-day programme includes drag nights, a street party, and much more. 

The new low-risk programme of events was created to achieve three things:

  1. Inclusivity
  2. A better sense of celebration given the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising 
  3. A viable approach

Christopher Tait, chair of Pride Glasgow said: “We’re thrilled to be able to deliver a programme of events for the community, by the community.

"Given the challenges we faced earlier in the year, we’re delighted that we’ve been able to work quickly and collaboratively to deliver some great events across the city, for a diverse audience.

“We are expecting upwards of 5,000 in the march next Saturday, the biggest and most important reason for Pride to exist – standing up for our rights.

"If members of the public would like to join in, they can either join at the start or line the streets to cheer the march on. It’s a peaceful and family-orientated event.”
