Pride in London

After more than a million people took to the streets to celebrate Pride in London this year, organisers have confirmed when the event will be taking place in 2024.

Despite it usually happening in July, next year Pride in London will be held on Saturday 29 June.

“Our capital’s Pride celebrations were a huge success and I can’t wait to see what the Pride in London team have planned for 2024,” Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, said.

“Our city has many thriving and vibrant LGBTQI+ communities, and it’s vital that we celebrate this diversity, while continuing to champion LGBTQI+ rights through events like Pride.

“The march of solidarity and celebration is one of the reasons that London is renowned across the globe as a beacon of inclusion and diversity, and by continuing to work together, will help us to build a better London for all.”

This year, Pride in London launched its ‘Never March Alone’ campaign, which emphasised the importance of supporting the trans+ community as it faces increasing persecution from both the media and politicians.

Queer Britain, the UK’s first museum dedicated to the LGBTQ+ community, will continue showing portraits and video from the campaign throughout the summer.

Looking ahead to 2024, Christopher Joell-Deshields, CEO of Pride in London, said: “Following a momentous display of trans allyship with our 2023 campaign and the recent parade, we are excited to continue fostering unity and advocating for equality across the capital.”

More than 30,000 participants from around 600 organisations got involved in 2023’s Parade, which began at Hyde Park Corner and ended at Whitehall.

The day featured headline performances from Adam Lambert, Idina Menzel and Todrick Hall, with other stars such as Eden Hunter, Rita Ora and Jack Hawitt each delivering show-stopping sets.
