Pride - London 2011

Over a million people visited West End Ward on Saturday 2nd June to celebrate Pride 2011. The parade and festivities, which included bright and colorful costumes and floats, started from the BBC Broadcasting House making its way down through Regents Street and Piccadilly to finish at Trafalgar Square.

This event has support from all major political parties and was led by the Deputy Mayor of London Richard Barnes and other political representatives.

An eclectic mix of music, stalls and a good lineup on the main stage in Trafalgar Square kept the crowd entertained throughout the day and speeches were also given from the likes of England rugby union player Ben Cohen. Further entertainment was provided in Soho as the streets were closed to traffic allowing a street party to take place. Soho Square also played home to the official Pride Dance Stage.
