The traditional parade through St Peter Port also marked 50 years since the first UK Pride march.

P!nk tribute artist Alecia Carr said: "The atmosphere is incredible, everybody's really made an effort ... I've enjoyed taking part in the parade because normally when I do Pride I'm on stage and that's all I get to see."

In amongst the flamboyance and fun, there was a serious message about the importance of equality.

Ellie Jones from LGBTQ charity Liberate explained: "It's all about inclusion. Showing that people are accepted, LGBTQ people in Guernsey can be included in society."
