What is the London Pride 2023 theme?

Every year London Pride has a special theme for the event, last year was #AllOurPride to mark the 50 anniversary of the original march. 

This year the theme for London Pride is 'Never March Alone', aiming to help support "members of the trans community in the face of media adversity, highlighting the joyful community and its multi-faceted individuals."

The theme also aims to highlight "how trans individuals are a cornerstone of the LGBT+ movement who have the full support of everybody attending Pride in London in 2023."
