Pride in London

GLADD is proud to take its place and march in the parade each year, as a celebration of our community and bold reminder of the work still to be done to improve the health of LGBTQ+ people. In 2020 we were part of the virtual parade on the Piccadilly Circus big screen - keep an eye on our events calendar to join us next year!
