Thought London was just hosting the Olympics this summer? Think again…

World Pride will be here in London on behalf of the global LGBT community on Saturday 7th July 2012

The theme for this years World Pride Parade is ‘One World, One Pride, One Voice’ and all parade participants will be reflecting this in their float or walking group.

The World Pride Parade will start at Baker Street at 1 pm and make its way down Oxford Street and Regent Street, moving down Pall Mall and Cockspur Street as it passes Trafalgar Square and continues down Whitehall where it will end at around 4.30 pm.

There‘s only two weeks left to consult on marriage for same-sex couples

There‘s only two weeks left until the government consultation on extending the legal form of marriage to same-sex couples closes. The proposal was not included in the recent Queen’s Speech but Stonewall is lobbying the government to press ahead with implementing this promise in the next 12 months in any case. Now’s the time to make your voice heard if you haven’t already done so. 

You can visit for details of how to respond to the consultation and tell the government why equal marriage matters to you.   

All aboard for equal marriage!

A message from Ben Summerskill, Chief Executive

We’re delighted that the Government has finally launched the long-awaited consultation on its intention to extend the legal form of marriage to same-sex couples.

Stonewall has submitted our detailed response and we’re now urging all supporters of equality in this area to make their voice heard by responding themselves.

Just visit our website – – to find details of how you can respond too.

To support the campaign, throughout April 1,000 London buses are carrying adverts featuring our iconic ‘Some People Are Gay. Get Over It!’ message and details of Stonewall’s equal marriage campaign website. To make sure the message isn’t confined to the streets of London, we’re also asking supporters to tweet pictures of buses carrying the advert using the hashtag #equalmarriage or to post them on our recently relaunched Facebook page.

We’ve all seen a vitriolic response from some politicians and clerics over the past few weeks in response to these modest proposals. Together we can make sure our voices are heard loud and clear.
