London Pride 2013
This year, Pride in London had to go through a process of rebirth and rise from the ashes of last year’s catastrophic World Pride which left the community disillusioned and angry. A new organising body, calling themselves London Community Pride, tendered to run the event and in January announced that they had won a 5 year contract to do just that.
The board asked the community to assist in making this year’s Pride a success and Polari Magazine responded by helping to curate and run the Pride Arts Programme, a community arts strand of the festival. Polari created a bespoke website to publicise the events and has, since its creation, maintained and updated the site over the past four months.
On June 29, Pride in London took place and Polari Magazine was there to document the LGBT community as they took to the streets to take part in the march, which is at the heart of any Pride event.
