Thousands line streets of Belfast as Pride parade returns

Thousands of people have lined the streets of Belfast as the city’s Pride parade returned for the first time in three years. Organisers said the Pride parade was the biggest one ever held in Belfast, with the number of groups taking part in the colourful procession up significantly on the last staging in 2019. The theme for the event was “community united in diversity” and a group of asylum seekers and refugees who have made Belfast their home were invited to lead the noisy march on its route through the city centre. The parade was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
