Skate Pride 2012 (7th July)
July 1, 2012
Fancy some skate fun next weekend? We’ve been sent word that next Saturday skaters are joining the Pride London Parade as it works its way from Baker Street to Whitehall. The parade is one of the headline events in Pride London, which is a week of events that include exhibitions, film screenings, concerts, comedy and cabaret performances.
You don’t need to be fast on your wheels to take part, because the parade is a pedestrian procession along the roads, so it will move at a walking pace – if not slower. Pride organisers recently decided no motor vehicles will be allowed to join the procession this year, which starts at 11am on Saturday 7th July. Traffic should not be a problem, but this is not a marshalled street skate.
Pride London welcomes everyone regardless of wheel size or other preference. You don’t need to be LGBT to join, the parade is a celebration of equality and diversity of the LGBT community. There will be a skater party on Saturday night for Pride London Skaters as well as any other skaters that happen to be in the area. Please see the Facebook event for details of the route, times and party.
