LGBT+ communities take over London's streets for a massive celebration of love in all its forms

London's getting its annual helping of rainbow flags, fun-loving crowds, and LGBT+ spirit with the Pride in London Parade on July 7 2018. This year's event will boast hundreds of floats and walking groups from across the LGBT+ spectrum, which will march through the heart of London from 12pm onwards. Group applications are now closed, but you can still register to march as an individual here

The day will culminate in a big party in Trafalgar Square, with a line-up of pop-tastic entertainment. And all day long, Soho Square and ithe surrounding streets will be filled with members of the LGBT+ community and allies gathering to celebrate (and continue) the battle for equal rights.

Details of the Parade route and the main acts haven't been announced yet, but check the Facebook event page for updates on the full line-up and times. And if you're new to Pride, here's our beginner's guide to having a great time.

 After the atrocities that happened in Orlando only a few weeks ago, you may have thought London Pride this year would have been a more sombre affair. It totally wasn't. Instead it was it's usual buzzy, display of flags glitter and fake-tan a plenty! 

However I could help but reflect on the events that had happened previously, and feel many of the crowd around me couldn't either. There was clearly admiration and full respect with the new mayor of London, Sadiq Khan and US ambassador to the UK, Matthew Barzun who were at the very front of the parade. Inclusivity, and sheer joy was felt where ever I went. From Regent Street to the brimming bars of Soho. The LGBT community stood strong and I could truely see just what the word 'Pride' really meant.
