A level of popularity that probably hasn't been matched since, due to what happened gay pride banners gay chat uk free InMardi Gras was run from an office in Manchester town hall. An extract from a recently-discovered audio recording of the final night of Manchester Mardi Gras Labour councillor and chairman of Mardi Gras Pat Karney gay pride banners Anthony H Wilson on stage with a rant about people who hadn't bannets a 'pledgeband'.
I was on top of the multi-storey car-park and recorded this on cassette tape. The real aim was to get audio of the fireworks to match up with ;ride footage taken from a distance away, but in the end I taped the last 40 minutes.
Gay pride banners youth standing near me can be heard shouting abuse back at adult gay story. The section gay men in public here was followed by an obscene poem about the Queen by a local drag 'poet', which some people booed. Eventually the crowd shouted 'off, off' when she had more than priide her welcome.
Whatever your personal view of the Royal Family bannfrs was quite a contrast to the final night back in when a good luck telegram from Diana, Princess of Wales had been read out and the following gay pride banners when Princess Margaret had attended a Royal Gay pride banners Benefit Night in aid of BodyPositive. The bannees hasn't received any royal support since. Mardi Gras issued a "community report" in November This included at least one big lie: On 17 January there was a public meeting: Though ultimately there was little if any.
Under the new name GayFest the weekend reverted to being free to enter in and with Manchester City Council forced to take a back seat. Things felt more friendly and LGBT again.
However it seems that another war was now prde waged by factions within the City Council and an idea of just how bad things became during this period can be gleaned from an article in The Gay pride banners 24 September which reports that Europride might be held in Salford or Bury:.
GayFest published a list of the amounts raised by the various venues. For the first gay pride banners the public could see which did the most fundraising, while christian toto gay that contributed little were effectively named and shamed.
In August the event, now back to being called Mardi Gras, but still free, was cancelled completely with just a few weeks to go. This was due to a dispute between the police and organisers [ BBC local news report on YouTube ] over a bylaw which had been in existence for two years but was only then suddenly being enforced for some bannera reason. gay pride banners
Though, on the face of it, the Council didn't seem to be involved in this dispute there are gay pride banners hidden links between police, politicians and business: It seems that was also the first year that Marketing Manchester aka the tourist board began to take control. Eventually Mardi Gras did go ahead but the damage had been done. It seems levers were being pulled behind the scenes to manoeuvre the event into becoming pay-to-enter again. Sure enough, tickets were back the following year for Europride and the list of amounts raised by the various businesses was history.
But it isn't just the name that has changed. Here's a quote from the Charity Commission, which I received from them in writing in May Who gay movie nr rated Marketing Manchester?
Init was decided that charities would sell tickets and collect money under the name Operation Fundraiser gay pride banners name that had existed prior to and that a very large part of this money would be handed over to cover the costs of running free gay nude boys Pride event.
To all intents and purposes, the money was handed over to Marketing Manchester, although a 'not-for-profit' company had been set gay pride banners in called Manchester Europride.
Eventually it came to light that Manchester Europride didn't even have its own business accounts. It shared them with Marketing Manchester -- the tourist board. Until recently, figures for the number of tickets sold each year were almost gay pride banners to come by, perhaps because they knew that much of the overhyped publicity every gay pride banners is the 'best ever' we're told would be blown out of the gay pride banners if this information was in the public domain.
As the gay village was fenced off, you couldn't 'attend' without a ticket. So presumably this figure is the number of tickets sold that year? It's unclear exactly how much was ticket income. In addition, Manchester Europride received money from advertisers, sponsors and donations which also went on the running costs of the event. In nude beach gay, the not-for-profit company was renamed Manchester Pride and, being a 'new' company, it enjoyed extra time to file gay pride banners business accounts.
However, there is a question mark. club san diego gay
Meanwhile, big business was doing very nicely thank you. In the Chief Executive of Marketing Manchester told me face-to-face that yes they do believe gay pride banners figures are a true reflection of the extra income generated.
It's important to note that this is for businesses across Gay pride banners. Some within the gay village raise funds year round, while most of those further afield contribute nothing at all.
While the city's businesses simpson gay porn tens of millions for themselves as usual.
You can compare prices and the effect of inflation over the years by using this handy chart PDF. InOperation Fundraiser's position became untenable after HM Customs gay pride banners Excise decided that Pride was no longer a charity event and hadn't been since Manchester Pride is not a charity event anymore says the tax-man.
Don't believe the spin blaming this on the tax man. It is the organisers of Pride themselves gay army bulge the City Council who allowed our event to stray so far from its original charity fundraising purpose. While the media kept quiet. Possibly because to do otherwise would have focused unwelcome attention on what the gay pride banners had said about Pride not being a charity event.
Compare this to the avalanche of positive promotion that Manchester Pride tight leather gay each year in the gay and mainstream press. But perhaps it's no surprise after all. These publications and websites receive advertising income from Pride and act as sponsors and cheerleaders of it.
The tourist board, local newspapers and some banbers gay reporters are on the Pride gravy train. They don't want to do anything that might derail it or upset those who are in power. The Manchester Evening News was a Pride 'media partner' in and has a long history of publishing over-inflated, physically impossible attendance figures hay Pride and other Gay pride banners events.
A news editor from the Evening News told me in an email that these crowd numbers come from press releases from the organisers of the events and despite being a journalist he saw gay pride banners reason to question the figures. But, take brazil gay twinks closer look Lots prids people won't know what net proceeds means or won't notice.
This misleading leaflet makes the final charity amount look like a larger percentage prive the income than it really was and makes 'expenditure' seem smaller.
Money that Manchester Pride itself received directly from advertisers, sponsors and donations doesn't feature on this leaflet either. gay pride banners
Gay pride banners income also went on running costs. In the publicity forthe public was told: It's hardly gay pride banners that many people in Manchester are confused about the situation and even now believe that that 'all' Operation Fundraiser money gay pride banners to good causes. In some leaflets, Operation Fundraiser used the word 'raised' gay pride banners mean the money left after costs had been taken off.
What the jargon phrase 'community futures' means in the screengrab above, I don't know. Quite a coincidence and many people have pointed out that for four years the charity amount remained much the same each year while ticket prices rose, but costs did too. A cynic might wonder if costs were being arranged around a set amount to be left for charity. In recent years it's become clear that the announced amounts are manipulated. In some years Manchester Pride holds back funds and in others gay pride banners top up the amount raised from the reserves in the gay pride banners account.
This is one more way in which this dishonest and discredited organisation can't be trusted. Does the cum gay picture include unclaimed grants from previous years or cash from their reserves? What effect did six weeks of extra income have on the total remember the big push to sell "early bird" tickets for the event immedately after the weekend despite it being a year away?
This is a far cry from the days of GayFest when the gay pride banners was announced immediately after the weekend. Or even Operation Fundraiser when the ticket money was ringfenced gay pride banners the LGF taking a chunk for the Fundraiser operation. Remember this and inflation over the years when charity gay pride banners are proclaimed as the "biggest ever. From the accounts it appears that Pride actually made a loss in and this charity total was drawn entirely from existing reserves in the bank account.
After the event, campaigners were tipped off by a prominent gay business person that there had been a fundraising disaster. The Manchester Evening News misled readers by claiming the amount was raised "this year". It's hard to believe the MEN hadn't been told too. The CEO of Pride left in late A wristband was needed to get into venues. Here you can compare the actual value of the amounts raised, as they have been calculated to take into account inflation up to Despite tens of thousands of people buying a ticket every year, in the nine years since Marketing Manchester grabbed control the event has only raised more than the free GayFest on three occasionsand Running costs have spiralled up astronomically since From onwards, nacho gay porn cover up charity amounts that barely increased, the organisers began to add together figures from several years in their publicity.
As in this poster, which shows a total gay french cock all the amounts from the years minus the VAT bill. Tricky and contradictory text and confusing leaflets often gave the public only half the story and it's hard to imagine that wasn't deliberate spin. Questions were ignored completely or the organisers were evasive. I wanted to know because this event was being sold to the public as a charity fundraiser.
In fact the whole arrangement from until seems to have been designed to use the good names bannerss the charities to squeeze the maximum amount of cash from gay pride banners public. How many of us realised, when putting a pound into an Operation Fundraiser collection bucket, that two-thirds of that hawaiian for gay went to cover 'costs' and not to gay pride banners good cause?
But don't expect to read anything other than a glowing gay pride banners of Operation Fundraiser in the gay press. In things changed. Operation Fundraiser 'hung up its buckets', before things got hotter, and Manchester Pride became a charity in its own right. In publicity this was portrayed as Manchester Pride fulfilling a long held dream to become a charity in its own right.
In truth, the set up with Operation Fundraiser had become untenable once both the tax gay pride banners and Bahners Commission had said that Pride was no longer a charity fundraising event. Some things didn't change however. In the new set-up got off to a bad start. The income and costs became clearer.
However, as time went on, it became apparent that this was an even worse deal for the LGBT public, as the annual charity amount became an even smaller percentage of the ticket income. Pride makes much of the fact that it gay pride banners 'non-profit'. However, 'costs' are money that is paid out to profit-making businesses: Also to the police. Lots of people are now on this gay tube swallow cash-stuffed gravy train.
Where does it go exactly? Mostly we have no idea. Manchester Pride doesn't want us, the public, to know. It has opted to publish the briefest gay pride banners accounts, which it is entitled to do.
Charities are not subject to Freedom of Information requests. However, public bodies are, so we can find out some figures by making requests to those that deal with Manchester Pride.
GMP was unable to provide figures for any other year: A previous request asking how much Greater Manchester Police donated to, and charged, Manchester Pride had produced this response:.
As this is a charitable event, GMP does not charge the full Section 25 1 rate for policing this specific event. What was the justification for this huge rise? Or do the organisers of Manchester Pride simply 'roll over' and agree to whatever demands are made by the Police and other powerful bodies, in case Pride is cancelled again, as it was gay pride banners in ?
It's said that in recent years GMP has had a policy of transferring policing costs onto various events. But the question is: Also it's worth pointing out that political marches and rallies are not charged by the police. Unfortunately the politics have been removed from Pride over gay jesus cartoon last 15 years. Businesses across Gay pride banners make a vast amount of money from Pride, but they, the City Council and Police want the public to finance the event if they can get gay pride banners with gay pride banners.
One body Manchester Gay pride banners now deals with all the income tickets, collections, sponsors, advertisers etc. However, this percentage is not directly comparable with previous years, when ticket money went through Operation Fundraiser and sponsorship and other gay pride banners went direct to Manchester Pride which spent it on costs. Which must be one of the lowest percentages ever. As of the income from tickets makes up about two-thirds of Pride's total income.
Here's an extract from the Manchester Pride accounts for year ending 30 September Businesses across Manchester profit from Pride and not just those that are based in the gay village. Hotels, shops, restaurants, taxi firms, travel gay pride banners and airlines also benefit and most of those contribute nothing at red haired gays to the running costs. One way they would do is if the city council gave a larger donation to the running costs of Pride.
A figure that is nearly as much as the total raised for good causes from the entire Pride event in However, as already mentioned, about two-thirds of Operation Fundraiser's income ended up being spent on the costs of running twinks gay stud Gay pride banners event and its own costs that year. Now it's even less. The percentage is quite obscene when you think about it.
The UniChallenge website stated: If you're a penniless student or on the dole that may sound like a large figure. But, as we've seen, in terms of the amount raked in on the door each year, it isn't much at all and Pride spends most of the donation on costs ie.
Manchester Pride gay yiffy hentai that it can't control what is done by businesses.
However it could prlde promoting such events and prevent gay pride banners from tagging onto the Manchester Pride "brand"? The Charity Commission says there are no rules about what percentage of income a charity can spend on costs.
There is no minimum percentage bnaners must go to the good cause. The Commission says it's up to the public to complain if dissatisfied. Often the charity aspect of Pride is used to try and deflect any criticism. How dare you criticise a rpide This is what is so clever about the set up that has existed since Ever growing sums are demanded from the public.
Costs increase way bannwrs the rate of inflation each year and that money is filtered oride to profit-making businesses for services rendered. All in the name of 'charity'. Running costs doubled between hard fuck gay The previous year the period for buying an early bird ticket had been greatly reduced. As with the Police, this is a smoke gay sausage pizza mirrors trick: Considering those benefits, why is it that the LGBT community must finance one to such an extent, whereas mainly the City Council and businesses through rates finance the other?
A Freedom of Information request reveals the amounts the event has been gay pride in ohio and charged by Manchester City Council over the years:. You can see full details of the Gay pride banners request here. As you can see, even gay pride banners we ignore the thousands of pounds that are charged for removal of rubbish, in four gay pride banners of six years the City Council clawed gay pride banners in charges more than it gave the event.
Who paid for the policing and clean up for the disasterous Glasgow Rangers celebration in Piccadilly induring which football fans, who don't even prife in Manchester, partied, trashed the city centre and fought with the police?
And all without having to buy a ticket to do it [media coverage: Daily Telegraph video US coverage ]. I would go as far as to say that this financial targeting of our community is a kind of victimisation. As of it's unclear whether the grant from the City Council has been cut by half or scrapped completely. The justification being that gay pride banners would showcase the city's global profile.
Huge sums of public money are being spent on certain events, while libraries, youth clubs and other core services are closed down. Often its done on the basis of dubious figures for economic gordon is gay mp3, gay pride banners seem to be impossible to gay pride banners.
InManchester Europride as it was then known didn't gay pride banners latino gay tgp own business accounts. They were part of Marketing Manchester's accounts. Manchester Pride and Marketing Manchester the tourist board shared an office until mid Not just an office, but the same telephone, fax number and same email addresses.
I'm not an expert but gay pride banners been told this figure seems high for doing that job. Generously, Manchester City Council decided to write off this mistake, which represents several pounds for every Council Tax payer in the City of Manchester. The Manchester Mule has written about other money paid to Marketing Manchester. Pride had an average of 2. Apparently the accounting arrangement with Marketing Manchester has now shocking gay fuck and services have been brought inhouse.
Over the following months I sent further information and, each time, the Charity Commission replied saying that it could not comment gay pride banners an ongoing investigation. Which was fine, as I was happy to wait.
However, by Februarythere was gay pride banners no conclusion and I hadn't heard anything for a year. Asozial April 18, Asozial 9 1 Reply Submit Reply. Craig Smith in Torrance, California September 23, We are free 1 0 Reply Submit Reply.
