So if you’re going to Pride In London this weekend here’s five other things you should totally check out
Pride in London isn’t just about the massive parade that’s taking place in the centre of London (although that is a hugggge part of it) there are hundreds of other activities to get involved with.
1) Saucy Soho Tours
Up until the 8th of July, you can embark on a tour of Soho and discover why it became the home of LGBT+ life. The tour lasts one hour and 15 minutes and costs £16.25. If you can get tickets pop over to Tate Britain and take a look at the incredible Queer British Art 1861-1967 Exhibition.
2) Gay Theatre
If you’ve got the time you might want to stop by London’s only LGBT theatre, Above The Stag. The theatre runs a programme of gay content throughout the year. During pride season, ATS is showing He Shoots He Scores. Tickets are available from £20.
3) Moonlight Screening
4) The Scene
During pride, you have to get yourself to the scene. Now, a word to the wise, Old Compton Street becomes very, very busy – don’t expect too much room to swing a cat (so leave him at home). To find your closest LGBT venue, download our free bar finder app.
5) UK Black Pride
Pride in the park takes place in the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens on the Sunday after the Parade. Pride in the Park is a community-style event with all kinds of entertainment. There’ll be a cake baking competition, sports events, dog show, music, spoken word and food and drink. All in a relaxed atmosphere that everyone is welcome to be a part of.
