Hundreds of people have taken part in Plymouth's Gay Pride this lunchtime. A festival is being held on the Hoe this afternoon which will have stalls, advice shops, and live music. The deputy Lord Mayor and city MP Oliver Colvile officially opened the event.

"We are taking Gay Pride to a new level in the city and bringing our showcase to the city's front garden for all people to celebrate Plymouth's growing diversity and community richness."

"Plymouth has often been regarded as a difficult place to be LGBT - the city has a history of being a garrison town and some attitudes have been slow to change, with incidents of violence and hatred occurring."

"But Pride in Plymouth has connected the diverse group of people who make up the city's LGBT communities and enabled them to take pride in their place in the city."
