Last year organisers of London Pride estimated around 700,000 people witnessed the parade, with around 30,000 people participating, this Saturday’s celebrations could be seen by nearly a million.
That number is likely to include tourists and shoppers in the West End, who see the parade, pass by but were not actively participating in the event.
Wembley Arch and the London Eye will be lit up in rainbow colours, to celebrate the parade.
Michael Salter, Chairman of Pride in London said:
It’s incredible to see how Pride in London has grown over the last three years to quickly become the biggest Pride event in the country.
The annual Pride Parade now includes over 250 groups representing the incredible diversity of London’s LGBT+ community. And this year’s Parade theme Pride Heroes will ensure this is the most colourful and exhilarating Parade the city has ever seen.”
