Michael Salter, chair of London LGBT+ Community Pride said: “Pride is a celebration of our achievements, a chance to campaign and a great moment for solidarity across the community. Given the theme is ‘Love (and Marriage)’, if everyone participating in the Parade is the wedding cake then the entertainers we are announcing today are the icing on that cake; whether they are much loved favourites or up-and-coming talent they will top our celebration. With less than three weeks to go, I hope everyone is planning their Pride and making the most of the huge range of events that are available through the Pride Arts Programme.”
He added: “If you haven’t booked your tickets it’s not too late, see Clare Balding host An Audience with Martina Navratilova at our opening event on the 23 June, have dinner alongside Boris Johnson on the 25 June, join us at a special Book of Mormon performance on the 27 June, or soak up the atmosphere at Summer Rites Pride in the Park after the Parade on the 29 June. Every ticket sold for those events goes to help support Pride in London.”
