Calling all Londoners and beyond! The Trans+ Pride March is taking over the streets of the capital with a revived revolutionary spirit. A response to the injustices that trans+ people face daily, all over the world, the march holds the sentiment that pride is very much a protest close to its heart.

Meeting at 1pm at Wellington Arch and ending in Soho Square, the march will begin swiftly at 2pm. This year, Trans+ Pride rejoice for another edition of trans solidarity, rage and joy. At 3pm, there will be speeches from members of the community followed by a garden hangout. The organisation has requested that flowers be worn, advising that attendees should bring signs, banners and flags, water and snacks, comfortable footwear, PPE and sanitiser, sunscreen, layers and of course, a friend.

In terms of transport, the easiest Underground stations are: Hyde Park Corner, Green Park, Victoria and St James’ Park. By bus, the route can be accessed by Hyde Park Corner ( 2 | 13 |16 | 36 | 38 | 52 | 148 | 390 | N2 | N16 | N38), Hyde Park Corner Station (23 | 74 |137 | 414 | N74 | N137 | 9 | 52 | N9), Green Park Constitution Hill (Stop E – 6 | 9 | 14 | 19 | 22 | 38) and Old Park Lane Hard Rock Café (6 | 9 | 22 | 38).

We’ll be there in full, fighting spirit to show support for our trans+ siblings. Pride is a protest; no one is free until we’re all free.
