Pride is coming to London! Pride is coming to Brighton! Pride is coming to Manchester and Newcastle and Liverpool! They are back and are sure to be bigger and better than ever! Join the masses in celebrating LGBTQ rights across the UK and dress fabulously while you do it! Whether you’re in the parades or enjoying the surrounding atmosphere, don’t lose sight of how these parades came to be. Beginning in 1972 as a political statement for the rights of the LGBTQ community and advancing through the years to take on homophobia and violations of people's human rights, Pride is so much more than a street parade. It is a statement of defiance. Defy with what you wear!
