Time Out says

Stand in solidarity with LGBT+ people of colour at this inclusive festival in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, which is Europe's longest-held community-led celebration of LGBT+ people from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Latin America. This year it takes place in Stratford after outgrowing its previous homes in Vauxhall Park and Haggerston Park. 

This years theme is Power’ and on the day you can expect talks, workshops and discussions in the Wellbeing Tent, community stalls, a day-long programme of music, performances and speeches on the main stage including the Beyoncé Experience, DRÉYA MAC and Lady Phyll. Plus, they’ve added a DJ tent for the first time and there’ll be an after-party at Fabric carrying on into the early hours. 

Black Pride’s co-founder and Executive Director, Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, says: ‘UK Black Pride is eternally indebted to the loving power of the Black queer women who founded and maintain us, and to those who continue to show up in spirit and in flesh to ensure our communities have a pride celebration all their own.

‘We are grateful to those who express power rooted in a firm belief that equality is not a pipe dream or a nice-to-have, and those who harness their power to positively impact the lives of those who have been left behind and forgotten. We honour the power our communities continue to wield to ensure that our communities are defended and supported, loved and protected.’

This isn’t just a great party; it’s a day of politics, protest and change.
