Time Out says

On July 27, Trafalgar Square will turn pink and blue as London Trans+ Pride celebrates its sixth year. The event is a vital coming together for trans people in the city, giving space to resist the encroaching threats on trans rights around the world, and come together to celebrate the community in the capital.


So bring a sing, cover yourself in glitter and join the parade, which will wend its way through central London, culminating at Hyde Park Corner’s Wellington Arch. Since 2019, the event has sought to honour the memory of trans lives taken, uphold the next generation of trans revolutionaries and support crucial trans rights. In previous years organisers have asked people taking part to wear flowers ”to honour the long legacy of transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming and intersex people who came before us.”

What is London Trans+ Pride?

London Trans+ Pride began in 2019, as a grassroots alternative to the more commercial Pride marches that take place in the city over the summer. Its main focus is to provide a space for those who are transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming people and intersex to make themselves heard by protesting against transphobic and archaic legislation and advocate for changes to trans health care, as well as celebrate trans lives past, present and future. 

When is London Trans+ Pride this year?

London Trans+ Pride will take place on Saturday July 27 2023. Participants have been asked to gather from 1pm and the march will take place at 2pm. It runs until approximately 5:30pm and will feature speeches and time to hangout and mingle with fellow attendees.

What’s the London Trans+ Pride 2024 route and where does it start?

The London Trans+ Pride route will begin at Trafalgar Square. After setting off at 2pm it will continue up Cockspur Street onto Pall Mall. The procession will turn right at Waterloo Place before proceeding on to Picadilly Circus. It will then turn left and continue straight onto Wellington Arch. 

The total distance of the march is 1.35 miles and organisers estimate it will take one to one and a half hours to walk. 

Why has the route been changed?

In previous years the London Trans+ Pride route has begun at Wellington Arch. However, this year the route has been changed to accommodate the huge numbers of people expected at this year’s event.

Each year, the march has doubled in size, so expect 2024's edition to be even bigger and bolder than before.
