The 5 Things London Pride Is Doing to Outshine Your City

The entire city celebrates

Apart from the parade itself, the numerous community groups marching in it and the related art, cabaret, and cultural events across the city, London lights up both the National Theater and the London eye (the huge ferris wheel beside the Thames River) in rainbow colors. It’s kinda like when New York lights up the Empire State building for Pride, except that the London Eye and National Theater form a huge part of the London skyline. You can see them a long ways out. Even non-LGBTQAs must see the them and know what’s up. It’s no wonder the city got chosen to host 2012 World Pride right between the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Summer Olympic Games.
