What Pride Looks Like Across the Pond in London

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Despite all the gnarly politics swimming about in London, the last weekend in June, people from every which place joined together to celebrate Pride. Businesses great and small were representing, and I was also privy to some festive novelties, delicious treats, and extraordinary displays lighting up the evening sky. Below, I give you a photo log of Pride in London#nofilter through my own lens. Many of these were taken in Soho, and if you ever have a chance to get to London, I highly suggest checking out this eccentric little place.
