LGBTQ people in East London are coming together to celebrate our diversity and oppose homophobia,transphobia,sexism and racism,including islamophobia and antisemitism.
We invite LGBTQ people and supporters who share our values to join us – people of all genders and all ethnic groups,people of all ages,and people of faith and none.
Starting at 1300 outside Hackney Town Hall,the East London Pride Parade will form a procession to Oxford House Community Centre in Tower Hamlets,by Weavers Fields.
The Pride festival at Oxford House will reflect the range of interests within our communities.
Entertainment expected to include dance,cabaret and more.
Workshops exploring contemporary politics and identity,for example,how the spending cuts and recession disproportionately affect LGBTQ people and lead to an atmosphere where minorities are made scapegoats.
Market place for local services,community organisations and LGBTQ rights campaigns.
Bar and café.
Picnic space available in Weavers Field.
Older and younger LGBTQ people,and families,will be particularly welcomed.
