Pride in London in Trafalgar Square
The Pride in London Parade provides a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that wills lives to be lived on an equal footing. 2018 marks 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK, and 3 years since the UK voted to legalise same-sex marriage. This day allows the LGBT+ community to speak loudly to the rest of the world about what has been achieved and what is still needed to be done. With more than 500 LGBT+ parade groups this year the Parade is not to be missed. Head down early this Saturday to make sure you get a great viewing spot somewhere along the route that starts on Portland Place at 12pm, moving down Oxford Street, Regent Street and Pall Mall and ending in Whitehall.

Ritual Without Belief Exhibition in Oval
Gasworks in Oval presents Ritual Without Belief, a solo exhibition by London-based artist Evan Ifekoya. Evan has been a studio holder at Gasworks since 2017 and has been commissioned by them for this exhibition. This exhibition comprises an extended sound work and installation that explores how to create the conditions for polyvocality, and has been described by Evan as ‘a black queer algorithm across generations, locations and political affiliations.’ Made from different textures, qualities and recording techniques and suspended from the gallery ceiling, the sound systems highlight the broad range of frequencies. If you’re keen to discover something a little different this weekend and also thought provoking this weekend, then head over to Gasworks.
