So we can celebrate virtually, LGBTQ Nation asked our readers to share a photo with us from the first time they went to Pride. Submissions poured in from around the world, spanning every year from 1970 to 2019.
We’ve selected 30 of our favorite photos and stories so we can celebrate with a Pride In Pictures special series and we’ll be sharing them with you every day this month.

EuroPride – London, England
What makes this photo special to you?
“1992 – this was the first EuroPride ever – and my first Pride parade ever. I was with my new boyfriend, who I had just met in January 1992. I was from Trinidad, and he was from Scotland.
“Since then, we’ve moved around a lot – we lived in London for 6years, then Botswana for another 6. We drove through Africa (Zambia, Namibia, Malawi. Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Kenya, Uganda) for 9 months, then we returned to the UK and have lived in Scotland ever since.
“28 years later…we are STILL together – just older!”
