We may get angry, run riot and lose our minds, but it all comes from a place of love.

Pride Punx was born in 2016, when we ran a community-led live punk rock float at the Pride in London Parade - as our demonstration in reclaiming the parade as a positive protest, and honourig its radical roots. Bringing our DIY punk rock ethic to the event was received well, and we continued to expand each year. Kim Ford made a beautiful film about the first event, and the wider issues surrounding the pink-washing of Pride in recent years:
