Celebrating Pride in London

0

My name is Rose Brassett and this year I will be representing Change Grow Live at Pride in London. The event takes place on Saturday 6th July and it is the UK’s biggest and most diverse Pride event.

Pride has been taking place in London since 1972 when standing proud of sexuality and gender was a highly political act, and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community were often afraid to speak up.

Nowadays, Pride in London is a vibrant and colourful demonstration and celebration, of the LGBT+ community and the LGBT+ rights movement. Each year, Pride in London has a theme for the event, with this year’s being #PrideJubilee – remembering fifty years of activism, protests and victories that have made the Pride movement what it is today.

The event is made up of a parade starting at Portland Place, weaving through central London, and ending at Whitehall. There are a number of stages across Soho, Leicester Square, and Trafalgar Square, celebrating musicians and performers from the LGBT+ community. There will also be community stalls across where charities, local businesses, and larger organisations can promote their work, and show their support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender plus community.
