The former Mr Gay UK is Manchester’s first openly gay mayor and joins a strong line-up of people supporting the LGBT event in the town.
Hollyoaks star, Annie Wallace, best known for her role as Sally St Claire in the Channel Four soap, will be at the event as well as local drag queen Cindi Sinful, and there will also be music from Claire Mooney.
The celebrations start at 10 am in the Forum Centre where there will be stalls, crafts and performance workshops.
And Fury apologised for the comments at ceremony saying: “I’ve said a lot stuff not with intention to hurt anyone. A lot of it was tongue in cheek. I’m not a serious person. If I’ve said anything in the past that’s hurt anybody, I’m sorry. It’s not my intention to do that.”
Dubbed the Gypsy King because of his Irish traveller heritage, Fury’s boxing talent was forged in the Jimmy Egan Boxing Academy in Royalthorn Road, Wythenshawe.
His first coach was Steve Egan, who runs the club. He predicted in 2006 that Fury would be heavyweight champion by 2015 and undisputed heavyweight champion by 2016.
Fury said at the ceremony: “It’s took 27 years to get to where I am now. There are seven billion people on the planet and there’s only one heavy weight champion. I’m very proud of that.”
