Live from Manchester’s Alternative Pride Festival with Mark Fletcher & Bright Light Bright Light

Dan and James catch up with Bright Light Bright Light and Mark Fletcher, the CEO of Manchester Pride.


Mark opens up about the racism and fetishisation he’s experienced whilst running the festival, and the unexpected resistance he faced last year when Manchester Pride adopted the racially inclusive flag, with brown and black stripes.


We also catch up with our fave queer music artist (and creator of our theme tune!) Bright Light Bright Light to hear about his new album Fun City and how he’s coping with a lack of ‘physical’ Pride events this year. Bright Light Bright Light’s amazing album Fun City is out NOW - https://orcd.co/funcity
