London Pride Trafalgar Square

After all the fun of the Pride parade, we walked over to Trafalgar Square (well, after a quick Nando's stop off) to see Conchita perform. I got really lucky, as we stood in front of a bench on which people were standing and, after 10 minutes or so, one of these people left. I hopped up on the bench and had a completely clear view over everybody's heads. Amazing!

The show was running a bit behind, so we had a dance to Sam Fox first. Her dancers are amazing!

There's always one who breaks away to dance in the fountain.

After Sam Fox, Anthony Cotton (Coronation Street's Sean) introduced Ian McKellen to the stage. He got such an amazing reaction from the crowd.

Sir Ian was a hugely inspiring, and hilarious, speaker: "Who's idea was it to put a massive cock here?" He had been speaking to a Russian teenager who had come to London for his first pride, and was so touched by the boy's story that he wore a T shirt with the Russian words for "Some people are gay, even in Russia. Get over it". 

He then introduced Conchita to the stage, and the reaction from the crowd was amazing.
She looked beautiful and sang so wonderfully. There was a lot of singing along to Rise Like a Phoenix. 

Afterwards, I danced in the street to Katrina and the Waves. It was so surreal to be twirling around in the middle of these roads that are usually so busy. 
 It was wonderful to be part of something so positive. I can't wait for next year, or for Brighton Pride at the beginning of August. Bring on the rainbows!
