Pride in London has been postponed until further notice due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. Organisers announced the decision in a statement released today (March 23) in which they said the health and safety of the LGBT+ community was their “top priority”. The event, which was due to take place on June 27, typically attracts more than a million people to the British capital. A new date will be announced “in due course”. Pride in London co-chairs Alison Camps and Michael Salter-Church said they were forced to make the difficult decision to postpone due to the ever-changing situation surrounding COVID-19. “With the climate changing daily, we need to think even further ahead and make timely decisions to protect the health and wellbeing of our communities, volunteers and participants,” the statement said.
