Pride in London 2014: Official guide
Square Peg Media, the publishers of Out In The City and g3 magazines, has produced this year's official Pride in London guide. The guide includes details about the Pride festivities and highlights - including associated parties and club events, the parade, the #FreedomTo social media campaign, Trafalgar Square and Dean Street entertainment, Out with the Family Rainbow Fete in Golden Square, celebrity interviews, and much more besides.
Pride in London Picnic returns
Launched to great success last year, the Pride Picnic is returning in 2014 – offering a social and fun-filled afternoon to enjoy on the day after the main parade and Trafalgar Square/Soho festivities. It will take place on Sunday 29 June in Spring Gardens in Vauxhall. The idea behind the Pride Picnic grew from the idea that there is still a desire within the LGBT+ community for a free park-setting, out-of-doors event.
Trinity Hospice: Marching with Pride
Trinity Hospice in Clapham is a charity that cares for over 2,000 terminally ill Londoners and supports their families each year. It serves central and south west London, and has a long history of working with and supporting the LGBT community. Its new CEO is Dallas Pounds [pictured] – who has joined from her previous role as Executive Director at The Terrence Higgins Trust. The Hospice will also be taking part in this Saturday’s Pride in London parade (28 June) – the first hospice to take part in the march.
Film review: Jon Favreau's Chef
Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) is the slightly Gorden Ramsay-esque chef of a hit Los Angeles restaurant. However, he’s resting on his laurels – churning out the meals demanded by his boss (Dustin Hoffman). When a respected internet blogger reviews the restaurant and personally slates Casper, the portly middle-aged divorcee is shocked out of complacency and begins to question what he’s doing with his career.

Competition: TFL Pride
London is set to see its first ever rainbow zebra crossing as part of Transport for London’s (TfL’s) support for the Pride in London event on Saturday 28 June 2014. The rainbow crossing, similar to ones that have appeared in Tel Aviv and Sydney, will be in place for one day only during the parade at the junction of Pall Mall East and Suffolk Street, on the site of an existing pedestrian crossing. The parade will be passing very close to the colourful crossing, which will provide onlookers with a great photo opportunity.
