Join the party as thousands of people take part in the Pride In London festival, a celebration of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) community across London.
The culmination of the 16-day event is the Pride in London Parade, which follows a route from Baker Street to Whitehall via Oxford Street, Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus, Lower Regent Street, Pall Mall and Trafalgar Square on 25 June. Taking place from 1pm, it features more than 250 community groups, dancers and performers; while more than 15,000 spectators are expected to attend the showcase of gay and lesbian culture in the city. The 2016 theme will be announced closer to the date.
Trafalgar Square hosts the main Pride in London event during the day on 25 June, with plenty of live performances and speeches. Previous performers have included the popular London Gay Big Band and up-and-coming talent within London's LGBT+ community plucked from the “Pride’s Got Talent’ competition. Soho takes over at night with parties and events in the many pubs, bars and clubs.
