Despite the rain and gloomy weather, Glasgow Pride is currently taking place.
Today is Scotland’s biggest Pride parade taking place in Glasgow despite the rainy weather.
The rain, wind and gloom won’t stop celebrators though. Holding up rainbow umbrellas and cheering along the streets the pride celebrations are going strong.
As well as the weather, this years pride celebrations also comes with a speech from Equalities Secretary Angela Constance who will be telling the celebrating LGBTQIA+ people that Scotland “should be proud of the progress we’ve made to tackle LGBTI inequalities but we cannot be complacent.
Together we celebrate the progress we’ve made towards LGBTI equality in recent years, but recognise that there’s more to do before LGBTI people can feel truly equal and welcome in Scotland.”
Got caught up in #GlasgowPride march on the way to the wedding, so many happy people celebrating. Met one guy who said he just saw his son in the parade who he threw out of the house 12 years ago and hasn’t spoken to since Then some nasty old men head to toe on Rangers gear saying “they should get the guns out for that lot” Clearly there’s still a lot of work to do. Wish I could march with them #ally #pride
