Revellers took to the streets of Worcester today to celebrate the 2022 Worcestershire Pride March. The march has taken place annually since 2017, but was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid pandemic.
Organisers expressed their delight at the number of people who joined the march from the Cathedral Square to the Cornmarket, where a festival was held to celebrate diversity across Worcestershire.
Worcester MP Robin Walker joined the festivities. He said:
"This was a great event with a very good atmosphere. Not only did I support equal civil marriage for England and Wales, but also legislated for it as Minister of State in Northern Ireland, meaning that love means love no matter where you live in the UK.
"It was heartening to see a big turnout from the Scouts and the Guides, showing the passion of young people to celebrate diversity."
