Full report: Kent Pride 2015, in "Margayte"

Hundreds of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people marched through Thanet today in a "Kent Pride" procession. There had been concern that the celebration of the LGBT community could be marred after anti-gay leaflets were posted throughout Margate ahead of the event. In the end though, all was fine, as David Johns reports.

He spoke to organiser Tony Bee, Andrew Bigginton from Kent Fire & Rescue Service, plus campaigner Peter Tatchell.

Wedding bells on weekend of Brighton Pride!

Up to 200,000 people are expected to take part in this weekend's Pride in Brighton and Hove. The event - celebrating the LGBT community - is in its 25th year and predicted to be the biggest yet.

But for one couple it marks a very special personal milestone too. 92 year old David Montague has chosen this weekend to marry his long-term partner. Malcolm Shaw has been to meet them.
