Answer for London Pride

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Unfortunately, I am unable to attend Pride this year, and so my Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime will be attending and meeting groups on my behalf. I continue to support this great event through funding, marketing (tube poster circuit) and my Events team assist and advise the event organisers on all matters regarding the delivery of the event.

London Community Pride is a regular agenda item on my bi-annual LGBT, and separate annual trans stakeholder group meetings. The Director of Communications presented to London's LGBT community groups in January 2014. A debrief presentation is planned for the July 2014 meeting.
