Birmingham Pride supported by HSBC UK has announced that Steps will be headlining the Main Stage on Sunday 25 September 2022 as part of its much anticipated 25th anniversary celebrations.

Following its most successful Birmingham Pride festival earlier this year, preparations are already well under way to deliver their biggest ever pride event in 2022.

25 years of Pride and Protest is next year's theme. It recognises and reflects on the advances made in terms of equality achievements, whilst continuing the fight against injustice, prejudice and inequality that continues to affect LGBTQ+ people at home and across the world.

Event organiser Lawrence Barton commented, “It gives us immense pleasure to announce our theme for the 25th Anniversary next year, once again supported by HSBC UK. Birmingham Pride 2022 marks 25 years of “Pride and Protest” demonstrating our firm belief that there’s no Pride without the protest. It’s as important now as it was 25 years ago. Our LGBTQ+ community is travelling a journey to achieve true equality in society, and we are far from reaching all our aims. Everyone who attends and supports Birmingham Pride - a universally inclusive event, helps further our community aims. I wish everyone a safe and memorable 25th anniversary year. ”

Steps are the UK’s one of the most successful pop groups of all time, with 14 top five singles, 3 number one albums, 21 million record sales, 250 million streams & 7 sold-out national arena tours. The bands hits include Tragedy, Heartbeat, Stomp, One For Sorrow, 5,6,7,8 and more.

Birmingham Pride will take place on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September 2022. Keep an eye on the website for ticket info: birminghampride.com.
