Join the Parade - FULL

The Pride in London Parade (Photograph: Pride in London)

The Parade provides a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, intersex, non-binary, asexual, polysexual, genderqueer and gender variant people) to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow them to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing. It gives us a chance to be visible and speak loudly to the rest of the city about what we have achieved, how far we have come and what is still needed.

  • Small business A small business is defined as one that does not have a turnover of more than £6.5million, and not more than 50 employees. Examples: limited companies, sole traders.
  • Standard rate All other groups. Examples: corporate groups, LGBT+ corporate branded network groups, with or without funding.

Key points to highlight

  • Floats include a walking group, so when booking a float you don't need to add a walking group
  • Unlike in previous years, floats are categorised according to the space they take up
  • Wristbands WILL be required for the 2017 Parade
  • We are working to reduce waiting times in the parade form up area
  • Form up will be a place to be and not just a place to wait, with more facilities than in previous years
