London Gay Pride took place last weekend and I went along with a friend to watch the parade. She was visiting from Nigeria and watching a gay pride event is on her bucket list. So I obliged her.
Over 300 float and groups marched/danced/twirled/sashayed along the route and about 1 million people came to watch them.
I am not sure there was a theme this year like there was for the New York Pride, but it was a lot of fun, with loads of costumes, colours and diversity on display.
The sun was out, everyone was happy, except probably for the lone
stupid brave evangelist calling on people to repent and go to Heaven. I think a good number of people heeded her call and went to Heaven gay club, after the parade.
Here are a few pictures :
