QX Pride Guide

So last week we whipped up the DEFINITIVE QX Pride Guide. Our esteemed pick of things to do over the Pride season. Well, turns out it wasn’t quite as definitive as we thought, because here we are with more.

We couldn’t resist! Sometimes you just need more don’t you? Sometimes…a girl needs an inch. That Extra Inch. Is that the name of Victoria Beckham’s autobiography. Is it? Who knows. Who cares, really.

Anyway, back to pride! Here’s yet MOOORE gorgeous, camp, unique events going on around our beautiful city.

Pride In London Parade

Saturday 25th June
1pm – 4:30pm


WELL, this is the big one, obvs! The big, glittering, kaleidoscopic pride extravaganza! Where everyone comes together to be queer and wave flags and wear tiny shorts! Try not to miss it from being too drunk, or too hungover from the night before. Although that does happen. Quite often. So if you DO miss it, we won’t hold it against you. If you get down there, it’s a hell of a spectacle! Drink it all in!

The Parade starts on the corner of Portland Place and Duchess Street, and proceeds down to Whitehall.

 


Pride In Trafalgar

Saturday 25th June
12pm – 8pm


This is always the roiling (great word, roiling!), the roiling, shimmering epicenter of pride. The beating, rainbow-spattered heart. It’s where London’s gay glitterati throngs to polish off their celebrations with dancing and debauchery and PRIDE. But they’ve announced a host of the city’s best talent, from cynical sirens Myra DuBois and Vanity Von Glow, to engagingly androgynous X Factor contestant Seann Miley Moore. And, headliner Alesha Dixon!

 


Pride In The Park

Sunday 26th June
Vauxhall Jubilee Garden


Get over your hangovers on Sunday with Pride In The Park! It’ll all be ok! Just pop to the shops and get yourselves some mini sausage rolls and few beers, and it’ll all be fine again! Pride In The Park is pride’s sort of wholesome wind down session, with family areas, a cake baking competition and even a dog show! It’s also home to Black Pride celebrations, which is always amaze, and welcoming to everyone. They’ve got lovely stalls with food and merchandise – last year we got our hands on the best jerk chicken we’ve ever had. AND they’ve got a stage that’ll be booming with life throughout the day, with a great line up including gorgeous QBoy, hilarious Lord Hicks, and bangin’ Freemasons!

 


TRAFALGAR SQUARE LINE-UP

The extravaganza on the main stage at Trafalgar Square is the culmination, the shimmering glitter cannon at the end of London’s pride celebrations.
