London’s annual Trans+ Pride March took place on 9 July with crowds of thousands from the trans+ community and their allies lining the capital’s streets.

Starting at Wellington Arch, attendees walked a mile to Soho Square where, en route, they carried signs calling for trans liberation and shouted chants such as, “What do we want? Trans rights! When do we want them? Now!”

Joining the march alongside thousands of others were high-profile names including Heartstopper star Yasmin Finney, activists Munroe Bergdorf, Valentino Vecchietti and Charlie Craggs, as well as Member of Parliament for Nottingham East, Nadia Whittome.

Once at Soho Square, organisers set up a stage where many of these activists gave empowering speeches calling for, among other issues, trans rights, trans joy, intersex awareness and the reclamation of trans history.

18-year-old Finney was among these speakers, giving an inspiring speech that slammed recent attacks on the trans community by the UK government.

“This is my first London Trans Pride. I feel so connected to my community more than ever, and if the government is trying to eradicate us… Like, we’re all here and we’re just duplicating – look at how many of us there are,” she said.
