Birkdale Park Nursing Home in Southport has celebrated LGBT+ Pride Day in style.
Staff at the home, on Lulworth Road, enjoyed a colourful fanfare of flags, bunting, cakes, music, dance and immense Pride in celebrating ‘love is love’.
Birkdale Park has had the honour of looking after numerous gay and lesbian residents over the years.
The home prides itself on being a loving place to celebrate people’s love for each other regardless of gender.
Registered Care Manager Jonathan Cunningham who on numerous occasions has assisted in the large event management and delivery of Liverpool Pride said: “This is an immensely important day for all of us at Birkdale Park. It is an honour to celebrate today all those members of staff and residents who love people of their own gender.
“We planned a fabulous day of music, dance and general silliness as we rejoice in all things rainbow coloured!”
Birkdale Park Activities and Wellbeing Coordinator Helen Jones, dressed in her rainbow dress, said: “It is so much fun planning and delivering this Pride celebration. Many of the staff dressed in multi colours, head scarfs and many even have rainbow tattoos. Pride Day is a fabulous occasion for us!
“Love is love!”
