Accessibility and diversity

We want Pride to be a safe space for everyone (Photograph: Lauren Anderson)

Because Pride in London is for everyone, we want every event to be fully accessible.  As we host other events, we ask all our organisers to make their events as accessible as possible.

To contact our Access Team you can text, call or WhatsApp on 07413 288 466, or email access@prideinlondon.org.

This number is not to be used for general enquiries. Details of our enquiries number can be found at the bottom of every page.

How accessible is the Parade?

Our parade is very accessible for everyone to enjoy. To make sure you make the most of the parade, there is a viewing platform and wheelchair recharging point in Trafalgar Square.

To make everyone feel safe without missing out on any of the fun – we have a safe space in the Parade where we have appointed dedicated volunteer access stewards. We also have a shuttle bus that runs alongside the route. Don’t worry if you have a furry friend for the day, assistance dogs are welcome in all public areas.

Will I fully enjoy an event?

We will publish any important information prior to the event which will help you decide if it is for you or not. This will include if the event is wheelchair accessible, has BSL interpretation and is assistance dog friendly.

The information will also inform you if the event is open to all ages for everyone to enjoy and if the event has gender neutral toilets. Organisations must explain any restrictions on admission.

As we are an organisation that embraces diversity and equality amongst all, we do not accept events that exclude trans* or genderqueer people.

However, if an event is men or women only, it must be open to all people who self-define as men or women.

We give priority to events aimed at people who are sometimes underrepresented at pride.

 

What if I have a bad experience?

If you have a bad experience please let us know if any of the events fall short of the standards listed below so we can investigate.

Pride In London works closely with volunteers, staff, performers and/ or members of the public – so we ask all organisers to commit to tackling any prejudice expressed by these.

As an event that projects the message of Love in London we expect all events and organisers to provide a safe space free of prejudice and/ or discrimination. This includes but not limited to homophobia, biphobia, transfobia, racism, sexism and ableism.
