Pride 2022 will be extra special in the UK, as it marks 50 years since the country's first ever Pride event, then called the UK Gay Pride Rally which was held in 1972.
To mark the occasion this year's London Pride parade, on Saturday July 2nd, will retrace the original route of the inaugural 1972 Pride march. It will begin at Hyde Park, the terminus for the first ever march, before winding its way down to Piccadilly, then south to Haymarket and Trafalgar Square, before ending at Whitehall Place.
This year's theme is #AllOurPride – a nod to the fact that this year Pride will be ‘uniting the collective past, present and future of pride from every corner of the LGBT+ community'.
The organisers of Pride in London have said that they want to use this year to ‘march towards progress'.
As well as the parade there'll also be plenty of events to get involved with during Pride Month throughout June, as well as fringe events and parties that will spill out across the summer.
