Live: Pride 50

Season 4, Ep. 4

Friday 1st July marked 50 years since the UK's first Pride march, led by the Gay Liberation Front through London. To mark this, thousands of people took to the streets to retrace the exact same route and to protest the current state of the world for LGBTQ+ people, with the parade being led by some of the original GLF members.

We marched the route, and recorded some live interviews with people to find out why they'd wanted to take to the streets today, including Philip, who was one of the original marchers 50 years ago (and a member of LGBT+ Choice, The Pink Singers!). It's a special one.

Be sure to check out some of our other speakers: Lesbians and Gays Support The Migrants, Quamar Leather, Schools Out and LGBT+ Traveller Pride. If you can, donate to the kickstarter for Don't Say Gay, the new film about the impact of Section 28, and buy The King Is Dead, by Benjamin Dean.
