Pride in London have revealed that the world-famous Pride parade will take place on 6th July 2019, giving even the most disorganised among us enough time to order our rainbow make-up, feather boas and bloody annoying whistles.
Speaking exclusively to OutNews Global, Co-Chair Alison Camps commented, “It’s always exciting to announce the date for Pride in London but to think that this year we will be marking the 50th year of the Stonewall riots makes this year even more poignant. At a time when our community is facing attacks and dealing with division, Pride is a time to face down the hate and make our unified voices for equality heard.
“We are listening to and working with the community to learn from, and build on last year’s event and we have some fantastic ideas in development. 2018 was our most diverse event so far, but we know there is more to do to ensure everyone feels welcome and a part of London’s pride celebrations.”
