Out and About, Pride in London

Out and About, Pride in London

Celebrating diversity and inclusivity in our community, Pride in London celebrated 50 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality this year.

From humble beginnings in 1972 where approximately 700 hundred people marched; the event has become a huge celebration of all things LGBTQI+, with people coming from all over the country to attend.
Sharing a stall with the wonderful Jan Pimblett, Principal Development Officer at London Metropolitan Archives, we had the opportunity to talk with people about the King’s Cross Story Palace project and to soak up the colour and mood of this annual extravaganza.

Our story gathering focus until September is LGBTQI+, featuring places like The Bell, Scala and Switchboard. If you would like to get involved, or have a story to share about the King’s Cross area we’d love to hear from you.

You can contact us by email: Polly Rodgers, polly.rodgers@historypin.org or share your story here.
