Paint the town ruby red at London Pride Festival

Tomorrow, Saturday 3rd of July London Pride Festival takes over London West End. This festival is probably the biggest Gay event in the UK, attracting approximately 800,000 people each year from all over Europe.

This year, the theme is “Paint the Town Ruby Red” and the parade starts at 1pm from Baker Street, weaving down Oxford Street and Regent Street to finally end up at Trafalgar Square. Once at the square, you’ll find stalls, speakers, performers and everything else you need for the most vibrant party of the year.

So if you happen to be in London tomorrow, why not join in on this great party to celebrate freedom, equality and the right to wear as many rainbows as possible. And don’t forget your camera and your dancing shoes!

Have a nice sunny weekend!
