Prides and Mardi Gras

World Pride 2012 march

The UK’s first Gay Pride march was in July 1972, with just over 700 people marching through London’s streets.

Since then, hundreds of Prides and Mardi Gras have taken place across the whole of the UK in celebration of LGB & T life in all its diversity.

Stonewall is delighted to be at London Pride, Nottingham Pride, Brighton Pride, Manchester Pride & Reading Pride this year. If you would like to join us or represent us at another Pride event please email
