The history of Pride
After a two year hiatus, Pride is back for 2022. It’s just in time to mark a monumental milestone - 50 years since the first-ever Pride march took place in London.
We hear from Peter Tatchell, one of the organisers of the original march as well as Stuart Feather, both activists and then members of the newly-formed Gay Liberation Front. Britain’s first movement of openly lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
Peter and Stuart take us back to what is was like to be gay men living in the UK in 1972, why they created Pride… and essentially, how they made history.
