Veterans of the UK’s first Pride march celebrated the 50th anniversary by retracing the exact route that was walked in 1972.

Well over a thousand people met at the steps of St Martins-in-the-Field church on Charing Cross Road before walking through Oxford Street to Hyde Park.

Ted Brown, one of the organisers of the UK’s first official Gay Pride, told GAY TIMES he felt “a strong sense of achievement” as he marched once again in 2022. “We now have civil partnerships, we have gay marriage, we have legal protection, and most importantly a significant proportion of lesbian, gay and trans people are proud of themselves and haven’t taken on the hate and the homophobia that’s been targeted at us for centuries,” he added.
