The Labour Party has published a video message from leader Ed Miliband in support of the London Pride parade.
"It promised to be a very, very important year if we can get the same-sex marriage bill passed," said Miliband.
"I'm proud to support that bill because I believe that the gender of the person you love shouldn't determine whether you can marry them."
