Aside from my creative work, I am very passionate about equality and support for the LGBTQ+ community. In 2015 I co-founded the first-ever Wigan Pride event which took place in 2016 as well as a local LGBTQ+ adult organisation BYOU+. Since then Wigan Pride has continued to grow year on year. In 2017 I had the honour of working alongside the inspirational actor and activist - Sir Ian McKellen. Wigan Pride is something I'm incredibly proud to have begun and will continue to support.
“I could not recommend Zak enough, he goes the extra mile and more for you, nothing is too much to ask for. The website he created for us is beyond that of our expectations, the professional pictures that Zak had taken are also exceptional quality. He is also very reasonably priced for the work you receive, we will definitely be using Zak again in our foreseeable projects in the future. Thank you!”

I'm a strong advocate for equality. I co-founded Wigan Pride back in 2015 and the following year founded a local LGBTQ+ adult support group called BYOU+. Wigan Pride is something I'm incredibly proud to have been a part of establishing and making a difference to the LGBTQ+ in Wigan. In 2019 I stepped down from my position as Chair and Creative Director with Wigan Pride. Following it's third successful year and bringing special guest, inspiration and friend Sir Ian McKellen back to Wigan. I decided it was the right time to focus on other work and personal commitments and leave the project in good hands. Please support Wigan Pride and BYOU+. To find out more please click below.
