The London Gay & Lesbian Pride Festivals have been incorporated - in honour of the 2012 Olympic Games - into the 2012 WorldPride Festival, which promises to be the biggest festival of its kind ever staged. For the Pride Parade, London's gay and lesbian community takes to the streets with a morning celebration of costumes, floats and music. The Mardi Gras Festival is then usually held in the afternoon in one of London's bigger public venues with dance tents, stalls, a funfair, bars and many other attractions.
Venue: Hyde Park
Date: 23 June to 8 July 2012
