    History


    Pride London is a charity based in London which arranges LGBT events for lesbians gays, bisexual and transgender people. The first UK gay Pride rally was held on the 1st of July 1972 and approximately 2000 people joined that rally at that time. Section 28 of the UK constitution caused a controversy in 1979, which led to a march of Gay and Lesbian people, and then in 1983, the march was named as Lesbian and Gay Pride. Later in the 1990s, the march took a shape of Carnival. Pride London was formed in 2004 as a charity, and since then, it is managing the Pride London carnival and all the events related to it.
