Organisers of the Liverpool Pride event are celebrating a record turnout for this year’s march through the city centre.
Around 5,000 people joined the colourful parade as it wended its way around city streets on Saturday (July 30).
And an estimated total of 25,000 revellers flocked to the area around St George's Hall to mark the annual celebration of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in Liverpool .
Figures for Sunday’s We Are Family day of events are yet to be revealed.
Joan Burnett, a trustee of Liverpool Pride, said: “Thank you to everyone who helped to make Liverpool Pride 2016 such an extraordinary success this year.
“There was such a spirit of togetherness at the event and such an amazing atmosphere with people from every community coming out to celebrate at the festival.
“Everyone should remember All You Need is Love and this weekend proved that!”
The annual event was set up in 2010 in response to the aftermath of the murder of young gay man Michael Causer two years earlier, and takes place at the end of July or beginning of August to coincide with the anniversary of his death.
The theme of this year’s Pride was Liverpool Icons.
There were two days of live music and entertainment on stages, food and drink zones, community and education zones, a market place, family activities and speakers.
Among those taking part in the 2016 festivities were Members of Merseyside Police, six community choirs and pop princess Sonia.
And there was even a proposal live on stage, when Royal Navy officer Ann Jones popped the question to her girlfriend Emma Baldry at Saturday’s event.
This year's Chester Pride event takes place on Saturday, October 1.
