London Pride 2019 gets underway with huge rainbow flag

As many as 1.5 million people have descended on London today (Saturday) for what is being billed as the UK’s biggest and most diverse Pride parade yet.

This year participants are celebrating 50 years since the Stonewall uprising in New York which launched the LGBT movement.

The 2019 event also comes a month after a shocking homophobic attack on two women on board a London bus which prompted widespread condemnation.
