Time Out says
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’.
