Parade Theme 2015: Pride Heroes
Pride in London is at its best when it properly represents the community it serves. That’s why they asked what you thought the theme should be for this year’s Parade. Pride Heroes unites all the suggestions we received in a celebration of the people – and organisations – who’ve contributed to LGBT+ rights over the years. It might be someone from your workplace, someone mythical like BatWoman, or someone who’s less well-known but who’s important to your group. Whoever it is, the Pride Heroes theme allows you to celebrate them for what they mean to you.
Pride in London provides a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community to raise awareness of issues concerning LGBT+ people and campaign for the freedoms that will allow them to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing with straight friends, family, neighbours and colleagues. The annual Pride in London Parade through the heart of the West End gives the community visibility and a chance to speak loudly to the rest of the city about what they have achieved, how far they have come and the support that they need in order to continue this progress.
