Hundreds of people have turned out for this year's Coventry Pride.

Visitors to the two-day event enjoyed live music, community stalls and information about health and wellbeing.

This year's theme is Be You, which aims to encourage people to be themselves and celebrate the city's diverse community.

Pride is taking place in University Square, Priory Street, next to Coventry Cathedral, with additional events in Broadgate.
