Thousands take part in marches through Glasgow and Edinburgh for Pride

Thousands of people took part in marches in Glasgow and Edinburgh as part of Pride.

Crowds gathered outside the Scottish Parliament in Scotland’s capital, while around 12,000 people reportedly marched through Glasgow on Saturday.

This is the first time the official Glasgow Pride event has taken place since before the pandemic.

The march in Glasgow proceeded from outside Glasgow Green, through the city center before reaching the Broomielaw near the Barclays campus, where a small selection of stalls and activities were organised.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was also among the organizations present at the march.

Large numbers attended Pride events despite disruption to transport due to rail strikes.

The workers were joined by those attending Pride and other supporters in Glasgow as the RMT staged a picket outside Glasgow Central Station.
