A group of pharmacists on Saturday (July 2) took part in this year’s London Pride parade, as the annual LGBTQ+ celebration returned to the capital after three years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Those who participated in the march called on the government to ban conversion therapy for all LGBT+ people, reform the Gender Recognition Act, and provide equal protection for LGBT+ communities against hate crime.

The event which drew a crowd of a million people marked the 50th anniversary since the first ever parade in London in 1972.

Amandeep Doll, head of professional belonging at RPS, said: “It was a privilege to join in the recognition of the diversity of the LGBTQI+ community and our profession, especially on such a historic occasion. Our group of pharmacists and allies from all parts of the country loved the excitement and buzz of the day.”

Organisers called this year’s Pride in London parade the “biggest and most inclusive event in history”.
