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 they commemorate 50 Years since the first Pride took place in the United Kingdom.
The campaign for 2022 will commemorate the past 50 years and the evolution as a movement; acknowledging those torch bearers who have come before the pride and their achievements. As they celebrate and look forward to the next 50 years, they’ll recognise the challenges still faced by the 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 the community. On July 2nd, they want to make a powerful statement as they 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 environment 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.
