Over a thousand marchers filled the city’s street with a riot of colour, sequins, and rainbow flags on a beautiful summers day.

Hundreds of people laughed, danced, and handed out leaflets at the event to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues on Saturday.

Elliott King, chairman of Swansea Pride, said he thought the number of marchers – estimated to be more than a thousand – was a record.

Nia Jermin, vice chairman of Swansea Pride, said: «It’s just brilliant to have a celebration for the LGBT+ community that’s in the spirit of the city centre.

The parade started in Wind Street headed by the Lord Mayor of Swansea City, Councilor David Phillips and Council leader Rob Stewart, they were accompanied by a Victorian Policeman, Sgt Paul William Harris, and Allen Hill in his naval uniform representing the Swansea re-enactment groups.

There was a small disturbance on the Kingsway as two protesters stood in front of the parade with their banners. One of the protesters lay on the road, and the march stopped. The police were there, and with the security, they carried the protester onto the pavement.

The parade ended at the National Waterfront Museum Green, a temporary stage provided entertainment for the afternoon and well into the evening.

Around the perimeter of the green was an array of vans selling all kinds of hot delicious food from countries around the world.

A disco in a marque was on hand to pump out the music for the rest of the evening.

  1. Monumental lack of support on the streets of Swansea for Pride Parades.  Using children to make up the numbers for a Parade on ADULT Sexuality.  Those women thrown off the road were undertaking a peaceful protest.  But then when the police are so clearly partisan, the legal rights of protestors goes in the bin I see.
