Saturday 8th was the London Pride March, where it is anticipated that over 1 million people come to London to take part in the celebrations.


But, this year the march has been met with an unprecedented amount of criticism.

The event, which is set-up to be a celebration of inclusivity and a how far the LGBT+ community has come through their struggles, was said to be “over commercialised” with brand upon brand trying to get involved, as well as Islamophobic banners such as “Allah is Gay” appearing through-out the march.


Since this year’s march, there have been calls for the organisers to take a step back and reconsider how they run the event, to ensure that it truly becomes a celebration and not just another opportunity for commercialisation and unnecessary politicisation.

On Generation You this week, Chloe Combi and James Gilmore discussed the issues at this year’s London Pride and what it means for the celebrations.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.
