The massive annual London Pride Parade will make it way throughout the city’s centre in celebration of LGBT + communities (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, questioning, intersex, non-binary, asexual, polysexual, genderqueer and gender variant people), diversity and equality. It’s free to turn up to show support and watch the parade in all its splendour, as flag bearers and dazzling outfits fill streets. Follow it from Baker Street to Whitehall via Oxford Street, Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus, Pall Mall and finally Trafalgar Square where there will be live performances and speeches.
Only registered groups are allowed to join the organised parade although you’re welcome to join once it has officially passed and the barriers have been taken down.
This year’s event line-up includes Ellis-Bextor, Alyssa Edwards, Eurovision finalist SuRie on the Trafalgar Square Stage. Over on the Cabaret Stage you can see the Drag Idol Finalists 2018, Ebony Rose Dark and Dolly Trolley, and there will be family activities in Golden Square including Kid’s Karaoke, face painting, a bubble area LEGO pit and a treasure hunt.
