With estimates of 1.5 million people in attendance, this year’s Pride in London was one of its largest.
Pride in London welcomed more parade marchers than ever before, as the streets of the British capital were painted rainbow for the 47th annual event.
However, this Pride in London wasn’t like any others, as it took place on the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which is seen as the birth of the modern-day Pride movement.
Unlike last year, which saw the march interrupted and led by anti-trans protesters, this march saw groups from across the rainbow spectrum stand with our trans brothers and sisters.
Over at Haggerston Park in East London on Sunday, UK Black Pride hosted over 10,000 people for their biggest event so far.
With a headline set from MNEK, and powerful speeches from UK Black Pride co-founder Lady Phyll, it was an emotional, celebratory and important event.
GAY TIMES has rounded up some of the best images from these momentous events.

Thank you so so much to all the wonderful bi people I had the absolute pleasure of marching, waving, shouting and protesting with, especially @LoisShearing, our amazing organiser! We made sure everyone heard it today: TRANS RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS!! pic.twitter.com/xp8HJQuHDL

This #LGBT cooperation in the front row of the London Pride Parade is an inspiring and much needed political stand of #PrideInLondon this year. Protest against hate speech might save lives. #PrideisaProtest #LWithTheT #GWithTheT #BWithTheT #PrideWithTheT #BiVisibility #BiTwitter pic.twitter.com/Et7HlhGUdt

Some of you may have missed the @PrideInLondon Piccadilly Circus Screen take-over. The messages were strong as we reflect on 50 years of #queer activism. #Pride #PrideJubilee #blackTRANSlivesmatter pic.twitter.com/lKy25ecMar
