As a record number of people attended Newcastle Pride last weekend (July 15), we thought we would share some of the highlights from the events.

Childhood throwback as Five also performed.

The streets were brightened up with the colourful parade.

The ambulance service were there ready to get involved.

Emmerdale star Danny Miller, whose character Aaron Livesey  orms half of popular gay couple ‘Robron’ along with Ryan Hawley’s Robert Sugden, was also on hand to help see in the celebrations.

With a record 73,000 people turning up to the events, it’s no wonder the streets were packed.

We hope everyone had a great time at Newcastle Pride – it certainly looks like it!
