After three weekends of past performances from the LGBTQ+ charity, Manchester Pride has announced this fourth line-up for this Friday in its bid to improve life at home for LGBTQ+ people across the world.

Manchester Pride: Live In Your Living Room will have seen four weeks of Friday night shows made up of performances from Manchester Pride Festivals 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Thousands have tuned in to Manchester Pride’s YouTube channel over the past three weeks to watch past Pride performances from Louisa, Mel C, Youngr, Pixie Lott, Rita Ora, Lucy Spraggan, Liberty X and Saara Aalto.

This Friday, the stream on Manchester Pride’s YouTube channel will start at 8pm, and will be one of the first times viewers can watch Tulisa perform ‘Scream & Shout’.

The song, which she wrote, was first released by and Britney Spears in 2012. It was the biggest hit Britney Spears has had in over a decade, topping the charts in over 24 countries, and Tulisa triumphantly performed the hit in front of a Manchester Pride Festival Live audience of thousands at Mayfield last Summer.

The four weeks of past performances will be followed by four weeks of yet to be announced new content from the LGBTQ+ charity. Each night viewers will be encouraged to follow Manchester Pride’s social media channels for the chance to enter competitions to win festival tickets and merchandise.

Mark Fletcher, chief executive for Manchester Pride, said; “I want to take the opportunity to thank all of the amazing artists who have allowed us to show their performances as part of this series. It has reminded me what an exciting and vital part of our celebration of LGBTQ+ life the live music is and I have enjoyed the memories as much as the original events! We are thrilled to finish this series with an incredible performance from Jake Shears – a vocal, valued and supremely talented member of the LGBTQ+ community.”

The performances will be hosted on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and will only be online for a limited time so viewers need to watch it live or miss out.
