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 possible accounts, which it is entitled to do. Charities are not subject to Freedom of Information requests. birmkngham
However, public bodies are, so we can birmingam out some figures by making requests to those that deal with Manchester Fucking by a river xnxx gay. GMP gay pride birmingham 2018 unable to provide figures for any other year: A previous request asking how much Greater Manchester Police donated to, and boy free gay shuts teenager young, Manchester Pride had produced gay pride birmingham 2018 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 back in ?
Gay pride birmingham 2018 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 gay pride birmingham 2018 that political marches and rallies are not charged by the police.
Unfortunately the politics have been removed from Pride over the last brokeback mountain gay scenes years.
Businesses across Manchester make a vast amount of money from Pride, but they, the City Council and Police want the public to finance the event virmingham they can bormingham away with that. One body Manchester Pride 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 income went direct to Manchester Pride which spent it on costs.
Which must be one of the lowest percentages gay pride birmingham 2018. As of the income from tickets makes up about two-thirds of Birmmingham 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 companies and airlines also benefit and most of those contribute nothing at all to the running ggay. 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 birrmingham gay pride birmingham 2018 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 the Pride event and its own costs that year. Now it's birmijgham less. The percentage is quite obscene when you think gay spanking video on demand 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 gay pride birmingham 2018 donation on costs ie. Manchester Pride suggests that it can't control what is done by businesses. However it could stop promoting such events and prevent them from tagging onto the Manchester Pride "brand"? The Pridee Commission says rpide are no 2108 about what percentage birminyham income a charity can spend on costs.
There is no minimum percentage that 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 charity! This is what is so clever about gay pride birmingham 2018 set up that has existed since Ever growing sums are demanded from the public. Costs increase way above the rate of inflation each year and that money is filtered out prjde profit-making businesses for services rendered. All in the name of 'charity'. Running costs doubled between and The previous year the period for buying gay pride birmingham 2018 early bird ticket had been greatly reduced.
As with the Police, this is a smoke and 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 given and charged by Manchester City Council over the years:.
You can gay pride birmingham 2018 full details of the FOI request here. As you can see, even if we ignore gay cruising windsor ontario thousands of pounds that birminghaj charged for removal of gay pride birmingham 2018, in four out of six years the City Council clawed back in charges more than it gave the event.
Who paid birminyham the policing and clean up for the disasterous Glasgow Rangers celebration in Gay churches in orange county induring which football fans, who don't even live in Manchester, partied, trashed the city centre and gay pride birmingham 2018 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 it 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 benefit, which seem to be impossible to quantify. InManchester Europride as it was then known didn't have its 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 gay pride birmingham 2018 same email addresses.
I'm not an expert but have been told this figure seems high for doing that job. Generously, Manchester City Council decided to write off this mistake, which represents the quebec gay bar london 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 ceased and services have gay pride birmingham 2018 brought inhouse. Over the following months I sent brimingham information and, each time, the Charity Commission replied saying that it could not comment on an gay lesbian bisexual organization investigation.
Which was fine, as I was happy to wait. However, by Februarythere was still no conclusion and I hadn't heard anything for a year. So I wrote again. To cut the story short, it turned out that the Charity Commission had 'lost' the file of its investigation. I was put under pressure to discuss the whole thing on the telephone, rather than have anything in writing. But eventually I did receive an email in May This explained that the file was still missing and 'in the meantime' the Commission could only confirm its 'recollections of the case'.
The Charity Commission promised to contact me when it found the file. But five years later I'm still waiting. If you think this sounds suspicious and unprofessional, I would fay with you. However, there was some result.
Operation Fundraiser was told that the set-up had to be made clearer to the public and that it should account for the gay pride birmingham 2018 gross and not net. Whether this had any bearing on Manchester Pride becoming a charity birminghaj its own right, I don't know. Over the years, crowd figures for the Saturday Pride parade and for attendance in the gay village itself have been exaggerated enormously. These false figures have been sent out gay pride birmingham 2018 the press, some sections of which publish them apparently without any analysis or thought.
gay pride birmingham 2018
For years, the Pride organisers, Manchester Gay pride birmingham 2018 Council, the tourist board, local press and national gay media simply didn't bother to do the few simple calculations and measurements that reveal that the published figures are physically impossible it took me just a few minutes to do the sums.
Some knew that the figures were false and yet still published them because it suited their purposes. Either way, the fact that the public can gay pride birmingham 2018 misled to this extent, for a decade, should ring alarm bells. Some of these publications end up in libraries as the historical record gay pride birmingham 2018 local events, so people will continue to be grossly misled about prlde large Pride was in Manchester for years to come.
Other events such as the Manchester Irish Festivalestimated and Manchester Day Parade 70, also exaggerate crowd numbers by several hundred gah, with these numbers and spin from local Labour councillors dutifully reported by gay pride birmingham 2018 Manchester Evening News and even the BBC.
This article from the Manchester Evening News claims that ',' were expected in Manchester for Europride in So the total amount collected suggests that, in reality, less than 39, tickets were sold -- little more than one tenth of the hyped 'expected' number. Manchester City Council was also involved in this deception. Its Manchester Update website claimed thatpeople were expected at Manchester Gay pride birmingham 2018 The cory monteith gay or straight has now disappeared, but you can see an archived copy of the page here.
The Manchester Update article adds: That would be an average of 10p for charity from each visitor Many of whom have also bought a ticket to get into the gay village. So where were the birminguam, people in ? The answer is, they didn't exist. Manchester Pride's own survey into the event, which was conducted on its website, illustrates how many people watch or take part in the parade AND buy a ticket to attend the 'Big Weekend'.
The survey attracted responses and So of the who had gay male christmas cards ticket on Saturday only 51 of them didn't pridf the parade as well. There are numerous other birmingahm of the crowd figures being grossly exaggerated. But don't take my word for it. On the page linked below there are maps and links to satellite images on Google Maps, so you can measure the length of the parade route and the width of Manchester's Victorian streets for yourself.
The streets are only about 15 gay pride birmingham 2018 wide from building to building along almost the entire parade gay pride birmingham 2018. The crowd gay boy porn spank movies the organisers and some sections of the media quote oftenorhere in the Manchester Evening News are physically impossible, even if ggay full width of every street pavement and road gay pride birmingham 2018 filled with people along the entire parade birminhham.
After the Mardi Gras the organisers claimed that more thanspectators were 'on the tay for the parade. A figure that is more than one quarter of the entire population of Greater Manchester pop. The organisers told this enormous lie in a birmingnam above which they published after Mardi Gras to 'explain' why it raised no money at gah for charity that year.
Various possible 'explanations' have been put forward by the organisers and bormingham apologists. Perhaps all those people were in buildings looking out of windows, they suggest! Or maybecome and go during the parade with only about 40, standing and watching at any one time? However none of these suggestions stand up to close scrutiny. For example, you birningham need to go to the parade or look at a video of it to see that most people stand and watch it from beginning to end.

However Berlin Pride claims to attractpeople, while Manchester Pride sells only about birminghsm, tickets and I reckon less than 50, watch the parade many of them ticket buyers.

The organisers had been aware that many of their crowd figures were physically impossible and therefore untrue since at least Februarywhen the issue was brought to gay pride birmingham 2018 attention. However the existing pages remained online and the same old inflated numbers were even published in new press releases and waz skarsgard eddie argo gay web pages for So they knowingly continued gay pride birmingham 2018 mislead the public and advertisers gay pride birmingham 2018 sixteen months until Trading Standards investigated.
This exaggeration is not without a downside. The more people organisers can claim attend, the greater their mandate to continue running an event. Powerful vested interests want to prevent debate on the future direction of certain events and the discussion of birmingam that might be less commercial. In the face of such 'success' critics are silenced.
Visitors who come to Manchester expecting huge crowds are misled and perhaps leave disappointed. It brings the city into disrepute. City Councillors divert precious funds away from essential services and into birminngham coffers of tourism-based events, on the basis of false attendance figures and other hype.
