The bad news? The Pride march is off again. The good news? London’s LGBTQ+ scene is still determined to have a good time

The bad news: London’s official Pride march has been cancelled for the second year running. The good news: the rest of the capital’s LGBTQ+ scene is thriving again and ready to welcome you in. From thought-provoking theatre to all-night raves and a day dedicated to families, here’s where to fill the parade-shaped hole in your diary.

Pink Lemonade

A sold-out sensation at Edinburgh Fringe in 2019, Mika Onyx Johnson’s debut production blends music, poetry and movement for something riveting. An autobiographical exploration of love, sexuality and identity, it’s a sharp, playful and compelling portrait of queer life.

Until Oct 1, Bush Theatre, 7 Uxbridge Rd, W12;

Pride Party!

This 11-hour shindig is a double-whammy when it comes to good causes: it’ll be an ode to LGTBQ+ culture but also raise funds for the House of St Barnabas to tackle homelessness. Expect performances from DJs Boogie Cartel, Twice Shy and Mica Coca, as well as drag queen Ella Gant.

Little Gay Brother: Pride Rave

The line-up for this all-night rave is secret but with Little Gay Brother in charge, you can trust them to deliver “the biggest and best queer DJs in the biz”. A chunk of ticket proceeds will aid Stonewall Housing, supporting queer people affected by homelessness.

Sept 11, E1 club, 110 Pennington St, E1;
