An amazing 30,000 people took part in the Pride parade yesterday in central London.
The Parade was lead by gay actor Sir Ian McKellen who marched with Stonewall, and together they set off from Baker Street, travelling along Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus, Pall Mall and down to Trafalgar Square before ending at Whitehall.
London Pride is a celebration that the whole capital can be proud of. It’s inspirational to see so many thousands of people not just celebrating everything we’ve achieved as a community but also continuing to fight for LGBT equality here in Britain and around the world.”
This year’s theme was “#freedomto“, and participants were encouraged to send in “selfies” which could feature as advertisements on the Tube network, organisers said.
We have had a record number of attendees this year, with over 30 floats and 210 groups. The atmosphere has been amazing. The rain could not dampen the spirit, and people think it has been the best Pride.”
Take a look at Heather Peace new single, ‘We Can Change’, which is the first single to be realised from Heather new album, ‘The Thin Line’ (available to pre-order now).
“It’s my big gay anthem. It’s for every kid that has ever messaged me on social media to say they’re being bullied. It’s basically saying, stop pointing out the differences and we can actually change the world for the better. The line ‘this is just a part of me, it’s not the whole of me’ is really just a dig at those editors who feel like they have to write ‘LESBIAN actress’ or ‘LESBIAN musician’ as the tag line to interviews I do. Just actress or musician is fine. I’ve been playing the piano longer than I’ve been kissing girls and my wife says I’m much better at the piano.”
Heathers second studio album, ‘The Thin Line’ will be released on Monday, 9th June, and to accompany the launch, she will be tour UK on her biggest tour to date – stopping at, Oxford, Norwich, Newcastle, Manchester, Edinburgh, Leeds, Birmingham, London, Brighton and Bristol.
