Gay publication Midland Zone reported that Festival Director, Lawrence Barton, said about the successful event: 'This year has been quite remarkable in terms of the record numbers the festival has attracted into the Gay Village, the 50,000 people who lined the streets in Birmingham city centre who watched our best ever Carnival Parade, and also ensuring that the event embraced the entire LGBT community.
