London Celebrates Gay Pride

Posted: Jul. 3rd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Whilst their American equivalents celebrated the landmark rulings that would forever change the face of homosexual marriage in their country, the LGBT community of London embraced its own Pride finally arriving after 5 long months offund-raisingand organizing. Upholding a beautifully timed theme of Love and Marriage, the event will kick off on the 29th.

On 18 January, I was delighted to hear that we’d won our bid to run and develop Pride in London for the next five years with a grant of up to £500,000 from the Mayor of London. We’d already had lots of great support from our community, but knew the real graft was about to start. There were just five months to generate further funding, finalise plans and make our vision for Pride in London a reality.

Since then we’ve been busy working with community groups and sponsors and have enlisted a small army of volunteers to help ensure Pride’s a roaring success.
