Eurovision's bearded lady Conchita Wurst headlined the Pride in London festival in Trafalgar Square last night. It's estimated 300,000 people turned out, despite the rain, at the country's largest celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender culture.
Thousands of people have braved the rain to take part in the 2014 Pride of London parade. The parade kicked off on Baker street and will end with a concert tonight at Trafalgar Square where Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst will perform.
This year's theme is 'Freedom to', with organisers campaigning for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Londoners to be able to be themselves authentically everywhere.
Community organisations, campaigners, charities, students and even some celebrities including Sir Ian McKellan took part.
Singer Kylie Minogue passes on her best wishes to those taking part in today's London Pride parade.
London will get its first ever rainbow zebra crossing to mark today's Pride events. The crossing will be in place for today only at the junction of Pall Mall East and Suffolk Street. It's similar to ones that have appeared in Sydney and Tel Aviv.
To mark Pride week, 75 Boris bikes have also be rebranded with Ride with Pride logos.
