What an amazing Parade it was!
More than two hundred groups, totaling more than 20,000 people from diverse parts of the LGBT+ community, took part in this year’s Pride in London Parade on Saturday!
Who took part?
Parade participants included community organisations, campaigners, charities, universities and student unions, health agencies, companies and many special interest groups. Some were walking groups, others sang, danced and performed, and others rode on impressive floats. A safe space was provided for participants with specific access needs.
28th June was also Armed Forces Day, and once again we were delighted and honoured to have members of the Army, Navy and Royal Air Force marching in the Parade. When the Parade dispersed at Whitehall, armed forces personnel continued to the Cenotaph to mark this important day, especially poignant in the month that we mark the seventieth anniversary of D-Day.
What was the Parade route?
Many thousands of people lined the route to watch the Parade.
- It left Baker Street at 13:00…
- then travelled east along Oxford Street to Oxford Circus
- went down Regent Street to Piccadilly Circus
- and down Lower Regent Street
- along Pall Mall and Cockspur Street
- through Trafalgar Square
- and into Whitehall, where the Parade ended and dispersed.
