July 8 marked the end of Pride month in the UK as a Pride parade was held in the capital.

It was the 45th annual Pride parade held and marked 50 years since decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales.

Thousands of people have lined the streets of London for the celebrations and walked down Oxford Street to Trafalgar Square.

Over 150 police officers will be joining people and organisation for the parade, as well as people from the London Ambulance Service, London Fire Brigade and British Transport Police.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan was also at the event, and he told PinkNews about the importance of fighting aginst discrimination using love.

Across the city buildings and companies are celebrating Pride in their own way.

A pop-up Magnum store it Earlham Street is also donating all money made today to the transgender children’s charity, Mermaids.

The Houses of Parliament, MI6 and Guildhall London are all flying rainbow flags and will be illuminated with rainbow lights when the sun sets.

Here are some of our favourite photos from the celebrations so far.
