Pride march – Glasgow

Around 7000 thousand people marched through Glasgow City centre in a bright and colourful celebration of LGBT rights as part of the celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in 1969.

The march is the first of two marches in support of the LGBT community which are expected to take place in this summer in Glasgow and was organised by the LGBT Co-op.

The LGBT Co-op Mardi Gla Pride is not associated with the alternative planned march, due to be held in August 2019, the organisers of which experienced major issues last year when many people were denied entry to the event despite having tickets.

There are even Gay Guides to help you find your way around or to give general information.

In these photos there are people and families enjoying a very warm and very successful march in the Glasgow sunshine, relaxing on the grass and generally having a good time in celebration.

Also on display were some construction workers supporting their industry and highlighting that there are people from all walks of life who identify as LGBT along with the usual street preaching organisations who descended on George Square billboards proclaiming different views on LGBT issues.

One such preacher is pictured showing some interested participants the part of the bible where it allegedly condemns homosexuality although I don’t think he was quite prepared for the very well thought out counter argument that came his way from those who had listened patiently.
