Pride in London
Pride in London is held at London
Next event: -
Please see the forum post for more details:
The Pride in London parade will be held on Saturday 2nd July 2022. This year is a significant year for the Pride movement and the LGBT+ community as we commemorate 50 Years since the first Pride took place in the United Kingdom.
The campaign for 2022 will commemorate the past 50 years and our evolution as a movement; acknowledging those torch bearers who have come before us and their achievements. As we celebrate and look forward to the next 50 years, we’ll recognise the challenges still faced by our community nationally and globally.
Participation in the parade gives the opportunity for expression of celebration, joy and triumph but also the voice to rightly express the continued fight for those injustices and inequalities that exist amongst us. On July 2nd, we want to make a powerful statement as we march towards progress; calling on the UK Govt to ban conversion therapy for all LGBT+ people, reform the Gender Recognition, provide equal protection for LGBT+ communities against hate crime, by making homophobic, biphobic or transphobic hate crime an aggravated crime in line with racial and religious hate crimes, end its hostile enviornment toward minority migrants, establish a national AIDS memorial that truly honours and remembers those who we have lost and the impact of HIV and Aids and to take a leading role in tackling the violence and discrimination against LGBT+ people around the globe.

Just a reminder of the dress code from Pride in London: “In accordance with the law, the minimum clothing required is equivalent to standard swimwear for people of all genders.” We hope you’ll be dress in your best gear to show off to London
Rules on the Day
Please respect and follow any instructions by Collared team members, as well as the Parade Stewards. You might also be subject to a security check by Pride in London when entering the parade pre-production area, and please be aware, no glass is allowed in this area. You must not be intoxicated by alcohol or under the influence of illegal drugs.
We will be having the wonderful Pup Snap (https://pupsnap.net/) join us for the day to take photos. However, you are more than welcome to bring your own camera and take photos as well. Please do expect to be photographed as you will be in a public space
Meeting Point & Collection of your Wristband
We will be meeting first at Central Station on Wharfdale Road (the pub where Collared London is based) between 13:45 & 14:15. You will have a chance to store a bag and quickly change if need be. As a group we will then travel to the final meeting point. (If you do leave a bag at the pub, please be prompt collecting it, ideally if we can stay as a group and travel back at the end of the parade that would be great.)
Our final meeting point will be in the northwest corner of Grosvenor Square. Please make sure you are there between 15:00 & 15:15. This will be the last time you will be able to get your wristband from us
