London hosted a Scaled back World Pride parade on Saturday

The LGBT community celebrated the Gay Pride event in London, despite funding shortages scaling down the festivities

BBC reports:

A pared down version of London’s gay World Pride event has taken place without the traditional floats.

Organisers said about 25,000 people took part in the march through central London.

There was a party in Trafalgar Square with performances from Boy George and R&B singer Deborah Cox.

Due to a funding shortage, the event did not include floats or a party in Soho. It is the 41st year there has been a gay pride march in London.

The procession started from Baker Street and followed the traditional route via Oxford Street and Regent Street to Whitehall.
