The upcoming Pride London Parade is on Saturday 2nd July at 13:00. It is forming from Portland Place, London and will leave from the outside of the BBC Broadcasting House at 13:00. The route has been modified slightly this year due to the closure of Oxford Street. The route will go from Portland Place, down Regent Street continuing down to Waterloo Place, turning onto Pall Mall and Cockspur Street and finally dispersing at Whitehall as done before for many years.

Large numbers of LGBT-friendly people (including a significant number of family, friends and supporters) from all walks of life take part in the parade. Since 1991, the Friends of Dorothy Society of Change Ringers have rung the bells of the church of St Martin in the Fields in Trafalgar Square during the morning of Pride, and as the parade passes through. For many the most iconic image is of a long rainbow flag, in 2006 this was carried by members of the Metro Centre. In 2010 it was jointly carried by EDF Energy and Tesco's staff network groups. Since 2006 Regent Street and Oxford Street have been closed off to allow the parade to pass through. This is seen by many in the LGBT community as a sign of wider acceptance, although the parade once marched down Oxford Street illegally in protest in the 80s. Groups who participate include The OutZone Youth Project for gay and bisexual young men (Project for Advocacy, Counselling and Education), Mosaic LGBT Youth, Queer Youth Network(formally The Queer Youth Alliance), OutOnThursday, Metro Centre, Youth@Pride, The Pink Paper and Transport for London. Since 2004 the Mayor of London, both Ken Livingstone and Boris Johnson have participated by walking part of the route with the rainbow flag.
