About the event
n 1992 about 100,000 LGBTQ+ people celebrated right here in Brockwell Park, Brixton. Volunteers of the Pride committee in London invited the whole of Europe to stand absolutely proud with us. Despite the onslaught of state homophobia, HIV/AIDS pandemic, media hostility and public indifference we marched, we partied and we created international solidarity. Hear the stories of how it happened.
Meet some of the people who organised in ‘92 and special guests from today’s European Pride Organisers Association, who will be bringing their parade banner with the logos of all the Europride events of the last 30 years
