The Reclaim Pride march on Saturday 24 July will leave from Parliament Square soon after 1pm and proceed via Downing Street and the Uganda High Commission in Trafalgar Square. We will pause at these two landmarks to respectively protest against the government’s stalling on LGBTI+ rights and Uganda’s persecution of LGBTI+ people.

This community-led march gets back to the roots of Pride, being both a celebration and a protest for LGBT+ rights, with five key LGBTI+ liberation demands:

Ban LGBTI+ conversion therapy
Reform the Gender Recognition Act
Safe haven for LGBTI+ refugees
Decriminalisation of LGBTI+ people worldwide
Solidarity with Black Lives Matter

Reclaim Pride puts our human rights back into Pride. Every marcher is urged to make and bring a placard highlighting a LGBTI+ issue that concerns them. We want to make Pride once again an event where our on-going demands for LGBTI+ liberation can be seen and heard.

The Reclaim Pride march replaces the traditional Pride in London parade, which is postponed until 11 September.

It is being sponsored by UK Black Pride, Diva magazine, Lesbian Visibility Week, London Trans Pride and the Peter Tatchell Foundation, with many more LGBTI+ organisations expected to sign up and participate.

All LGBTI+ organisations, individuals and allies are invited to participate. There are no fees or wristbands. Just turn up.

Everyone is asked to wear a face mask and keep socially distanced on the march. The Delta variant is highly contagious.

March route:

After going from Parliament Square up Whitehall to Trafalgar Square, the #ReclaimPride march will take a similar route to the UK first ‘Gay Pride’ march in 1972: Cockspur Street, Lower Regent Street, Regent Street and Oxford Street, entering Hyde Park at Speaker’s Corner. There it will culminate with a mass “queer picnic” in Hyde Park, just like in 1972, with marchers bringing their own food, drink, sweets and music for a post-march DIY party.
