This year’s London Pride parade on Saturday June 25 promises to be even more fabulous than ever. Yep, everyone’s favourite booze-soaked fashion darlings Patsy and Edina (aka Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders) are leading the 2016 parade – part of wider celebrations by the LGBT community – as it wends its way, with maximum exuberance, through the streets of central London.
Loud, flamboyant and brash – how will they ever fit in?
The exciting news ties in nicely with recent revelations from Saunders, promoting the upcoming celeb-packed Ab Fab Movie, due for UK release on July 1, that Patsy is – OMG – trans. A foul-mouthed, chain-smoking, shag-happy transexual, naturally: Caitlyn Jenner she ain't.
On tomorrow's parade, the pair will be soundtracked by Jodie Harsh and joined by dancers from polysexual power rangers (and Time Out favourites) Sink the Pink. Stoli (who else) will also be involved, setting up an AbFab pop-up at the Freedom Bar on Wardour Street and serving bespoke cocktails including the 'Sweetie Darling'.
We'll be streaming live from the Ab Fab float tomorrow from 1pm on our Facebook page. Make sure you watch it, sweetie.
