The Feeling go Supersonic to support Manchester Pride

This is the moment when gay-fronted pop band The Feeling went Supersonic in the Concorde hangar for Manchester Pride.

The band, whose lead singer Dan Guillespie-Sells has long been involved in gay rights, performed at a red-carpet fundraising dinner for the leading pride event in north-west England on Saturday (6 April).

Guests dined under the wings of the now-retired BA Concorde plane at Manchester Airport before taking part in a raffle and charity auction.

The money will go to good causes as Manchester Pride is more than just a party – raising hundreds of thousands of pounds over the last decade for LGBT and HIV causes in north-west England.

Diners were also treated to a range of other acts, including Manchster-based Soul singer Ren Harvieu and the airport’s own choir.

Also appearing was British actress, from TV soap opera Emmerdale, Alicya Eyo, who was formally named as a new patron for Manchester Pride.

It was the first time the pride organizers have held the dinner, and they hope to make it an annual event.

Gay Star News is global news partner of Manchester Pride, which takes place from 16 to 23 August this year.
