The fuzz angels are out for Pride. (Picture: @camille_camila)50 years on from the Stonewall riots, Pride 2019 revolves around remembering the ‘activism, protests and victories’ that formed the modern LGBT+ rights movement. The month-long celebration might be wrapping up, but the biggest party is just around the corner.
Tomorrow, the streets of central London will be filled with revellers for the Pride parade.
The 2018 London event saw 30,000 people marching and nearly one million people viewing the festivities, and this year is set to be the ‘most diverse’ parade yet.
It’s a time for love and it’s also a time for our furry friends. Here are 13 fuzz angels who have donned their finest rainbows in the name of ‘celebration, diversity, activism’.
1. Smile with the eyes, and with the tongue.
