London Pride 2008

Helen and Jess: still excited after the parade has finished.
Yesterday Paul and I went into town for London Pride. We met up with Jess and Helen (above) who were very excited about it! Below are some of the photos I took but there are more on Flickr. Paul took photos too which you can see on his Flickr page (including one of the newly elected mayor of London, Boris Johnson, leading the parade.

    There were more than 2 of us! The other bisexuals were all dressed in purple, and they were in front of the banner. I still hope you’ll march with us next year, or come to the convention of bisexuality — BiCon 2008!

    Brilliant pictures! I took some myself too as I was there with my boyfriend and our mate. I enjoyed it all… drinking in the street, dancing and having the real feeling that you can just be who you are. Spent most of our time in KuBar then went over to The Little Apple – was a great day and night! I’m looking forward to next years.

    My pictures are here:
