The Red Arrows will fly over Pride in London for the first time at this year’s parade.
The Ministry of Defence said the decision is a show of support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and LGBT Armed Forces personnel.
The MOD says it wants to celebrate the work done in recent years to improve diversity and inclusion across defence. This year the Royal Navy was named one of UK’s top 10 LGBT-friendly employers, according to Stonewall, while the British Army also retained its place in Stonewall’s top 50 list.
The Arrows will perform a traditional red, white and blue flypast above the Pride parade, which takes place on June 25th. Around 200 armed forces personnel are also expected to march in the parade.
