The 6th of July is this year’s annual pride parade. Pride means different things to different people, Celebration, diversity, activism and also a demonstration. So Pride in London is back and the biggest yet. Lesbian, trans, genderqueer or otherwise; wherever you identify,
Pride in London is about the people, for the people. This year pride is also celebrating 50 years since the birth of the modern LGBT+ rights movement.
Over a million people joined the pride parade in London 2018. Marching, dancing and laughing to campaign for the freedoms that will allow them to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing.
2018’s parade was monumental, but 2019’s is even bigger.
The parade sets off from Portland Place at 12pm (midday). Moving down Oxford Circus, along Regent Street to Piccadilly Circus, Lower Regent Street, Pall Mall. And then passing Trafalgar Square before finishing on Whitehall.
So Pride recommend that spectators avoid busy locations such as Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus. Also the parade fills the whole afternoon until around 5:30pm.
Along the Parade route there are official podiums – where you will be welcomed Pride’s fun and friendly parade hosts.
The Pride hosts are there to let you know who is who and what is what during the Parade. So making sure you don’t miss a thing.
