Organisers of Birmingham Pride have announced that gay pop icon, Marc Almond, is to become part of the stellar line up at this year's two-day LGBTQ festival taking place in May.
Marc was lead singer of internationally renowned synth-pop duo, Soft Cell - best known for their smash hit Tainted Love, before forging a successful solo career.
Having sold over 30 million records worldwide, Marc has garnered an army of fans for his distinctive vocals and electro-pop sound. Other hits include Say Hello Wave GoodBye, Bedsitter and Days Of Pearly Spencer. He will appear Sunday 26 May along with artists such as The Human League.
Birmingham Pride is set in the heart of the city's gay village and last year attracted more than 75,000 spectators who turned out to support the parade through the city centre. Tens of thousands of party revellers then went on to enjoy the festival in the city’s gay village over two days. This year's festival, featuring the theme ‘Love Out Loud', takes place on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May. Tickets are available from birminghampride.com.
