FAQs

Do I need to be LGBT+ to be in the parade?

Definately not! This is a celebration of LGBT inclusion and visibility and we welcome our allies to join us in this celebration. There is a tremendous atmosphere of excitement and positivity and ... of course ... PRIDE in our diverse community and acheivements.


Why do I need to register?

In order to manage the attendee numbers and ensure correct policing and support Pride In London allocate wristbands to each group. We need to ensure we stick to these numbers and to avoid disappointment on the day, asking people to register seems the best option. Also, if demand outstrips our allocation we can work with our friends in other insurance groups to see if we can accomodate Link members elsewhere.


Do I need to register children?

Pride in London have stated that ALL people on the parade need a wristband, including children (and babies). - the wristband can go on the stroller.


Why am I being charged to join the parade?

Sadly in prior years, we have had a large number of last minute drop-outs and no-shows. This is particularly frustrating when there are people on the waiting list that might otherwise have been able to attend. The fee is designed to be an additional encouragement to ensure people with tickets attend. The Link team will recycle the fees in to on-the-day refreshments and contrbute to the costs of parade goodies.


When will I get my wristband?

We will distribute them on the morning at the meeting point (Paddington Street Gardens South).


What should I bring into the event?

You can never have too many Rainbows! Flags, badges, facepaint, shorts ... anything goes.

Please check your favoured weather service beforehand and dress accordingly. Be prepared for at least 1 hour of waiting before the parade starts. It is also recommended to bring refreshments, although there are opportunities to buy at the parade start.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, we'll have the registration list printed out so we can check off on this list.


Is my registration transferrable?

Yes! But to minimise confusion on the day it would be helpful to let us know before hand.


Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes! But to minimise confusion on the day it would be helpful to let us know before hand.


If I don't register can I still turn up and join the group?

You are welcome to take the risk and try. If we have no-shows or unused wristbands we will gladly give these out on a first come first served basis. But do remember that you may be disappointed, as we cannot promise to find you a place at the last minute.
