Catholic and other religious groups were well-represented at the World Pride March 2012 which wound through the streets of London on July 7th.  The Soho Masses community of London wore T-shirts that said “All Are Welcome at Soho Masses” on the front, while the reverse said “Nobody Knows I’m Catholic.”    Members of Quest, a Catholic LGBT group in the United Kingdom marched with their banner. And New Ways Ministry was present, proudly marching with our banner amid the thousands upon thousands of marchers and spectators.

Here are some photos which I hope will give you a sense of the strong faith presence in the march, as well as the diversity of attendees:

The countdown to World Pride has begun, and promises to be bigger, bolder, and braver than ever before.

It promises to be one of the highlights of the London summer calendar, sitting comfortably next to the Diamond Jubilee and Olympic Games.

World Pride will be taking over Soho, the gay heart of London, on 17 June to officially launch the event.

The festival will take place from 17 June to 8 July, with the main parade on Saturday 7 July

Pride London and global LGBT organization Kaleidoscope Trust will be honoring US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with the World LGBT Award this July at a gala dinner to celebrate the event.
