Catholic and other religious groups were well-represented at the World Pride March 2012 which wound through the streets of London on July 7th. The Soho Masses community of London wore T-shirts that said “All Are Welcome at Soho Masses” on the front, while the reverse said “Nobody Knows I’m Catholic.” Members of Quest, a Catholic LGBT group in the United Kingdom marched with their banner. And New Ways Ministry was present, proudly marching with our banner amid the thousands upon thousands of marchers and spectators.
Here are some photos which I hope will give you a sense of the strong faith presence in the march, as well as the diversity of attendees:
