‘It felt as though an orgy could erupt at any moment’ – the Pride I’ll never forget


The Gay Pride march in 1982 started much as it had every year at Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park, with about 10,000 of us ready to walk the route along Park Lane to Piccadilly. ‘Pride in the 80s was a demonstration.’ Photograph: Justin Kase z12z/AlamyNevertheless, we arrived, sodden and somewhat dispirited at our destination, the ULU. Then the party took off. It was a little too public for an orgy, though it felt as though it could erupt at any moment. It’s not often that I have been in such a situation where I have felt the spirit of Gay Pride – that proud sense of self – settle on all of us.
