Prime Minister Theresa May says Pride is a 'vivid display of the diversity' which makes London one of the world's

Staff from the Metropolitan Police, London Ambulance Service and London Fire Brigade, along with thousands more citizens, are now making their way through London city to celebrate the parade.

"We've had a horrific few weeks with the awful fire at Grenfell Tower and three terrorist attacks, and what today's about is love", he added.

Those LGBT+ colleagues who were involved in the recent Grenfell Tower fire tragedy, the London Bridge terror attack and the Westminster terror attack will be joined by the Rt. Hon.

Prime Minister Theresa May says Pride is a 'vivid display of the diversity' which makes London one of the world's

"It's showing that actually the best antidote to the sadness, the sorrow, the bereavement, is having a great pride in London".

Many in the crowd booed earlier when a video message from Theresa May was played.

In a message released ahead of the parade Mrs May, who is now in Germany at the G20, reiterated the UK's pledge to encourage other countries to ensure equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation, and to take a stand against hate crime at home.

Marking 50 years since Parliament first voted to partially legalise homosexuality in the United Kingdom, which applied to England and Wales only, Pride in London will be marching with a global message of hope, acceptance, activism and love and in a show of solidarity to LGBT+ people living in Northern Ireland which has yet to legalise same-sex marriage.

More than 26,000 people have taken to the streets, part of about 300 different groups, in the biggest march in the event's 45-year history.

Today may have marked 50 years since homosexuality was decriminalised in Britain but there was another battle today: to help the capital recover from a string of tragedies.

Parliament's Palace of Westminster will also be illuminated with a rainbow flag for the first time to celebrate the event, while the multi-coloured emblem also decorated tube stations and shops en route.
