This year Pride in London’s work culminated on 2 July 2022 when they held the UK’s largest ever Pride event, the 50th anniversary of the first march in the UK. Over 1.5 million people took to the streets of London to cheer on the parade and appearances from artists and LGBTQIA personalities which took place across five central London stages. Following this landmark event Pride in London have been nominated for a number of awards, in recognition of their 2022 milestone event.
Pride in London is now looking to work with its partners and stakeholders to continue building on their recent successes, and to push forward in advancing their relationships with LGBTQIA grassroots communities across the capital.
Pride in London CEO Christopher Joell-Deshields said “We were ecstatic to be back on the streets of London in protest and celebration in 2022 with #AllOurPride. We look forward to London’s LGBT+ communities coming together again on July 1st 2023 as we continue to show up for visibility, unity and equality for all LGBT+ people”.
Pride in London will open their call for volunteers and registration to participate in next year’s event in January 2023, via their website, www.prideinlondon.org.
