Manchester Pride has been accused of racial prejudice after some LGBT people of colour claimed they experienced racism over the weekend. Eight black and Asian people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender told the BBC of issues with staff in and around the Gay Village. They said they were refused entry to bars, not served in clubs and had staff follow them around in event spaces. Manchester Pride's chief executive said he was "angry" but "not surprised". Some names of the individuals - who are not connected - have been changed as they are not "out" about their sexuality or gender identity. He believes the way he was treated during the pride weekend could have been related to the Manchester Arena bombing.
