Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Get back to the grassroots of Pride by taking over a green space in Camden this Saturday with The Outside Project, London’s first permanent homeless shelter for the LGBT+ community. Think of Outsider Pride as an old-school Pride event, free from brands and corporate logos in rainbows, where people can get together with placards, have a picnic and mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall riots. It’s a chance for homeless LGBT+ people to link up with valuable support services, such as Stonewall Housing, Micro Rainbow International and a pop-up sexual health clinic from Clash.

The group will be gathering under handmade anarchist bunting in the park for readings and performances, and holding a vigil for LGBT+ venue The Black Cap, which closed in 2015. A monument will be made on the day using a New York parking meter, just like the one that was used as a battering ram on the door of the Stonewall Inn in 1969. ‘It’s what Pride is really for, to learn about LGBT+ organisations and activists,’ says The Outside Project’s founder, Carla Ecola, ‘It’s also about commemorating people that we’ve lost’.
