London – 6th July
Pride in London, the organiser of the UK’s biggest Pride event, has announced the official theme for 2019: #PrideJubilee.
The theme is designed to look back over the last 50 years since the Stonewall Uprising; the night that started a global movement. On 28th June 1969, members of the LGBT+ community at the Stonewall Inn rose up against continued oppression, triggering a series of events that gave rise to the modern day Pride movement. The #PrideJubilee marks 50 years of activism, protests and victories that have made Pride what it is today.
To mark the global anniversary, for the first time in its history Pride in London is launching an online call for the community to highlight the moments that have defined the Pride movement. From the infamous shotglass thrown by Marsha P Johnson on the night of the Stonewall riots, through to the scrapping of Section 28 and the iconic speeches on marriage rights by Panti Bliss, Pride in London wants to honour the moments in the past that have paved the way for LGBT+ rights in the present.
