Thousands marched through Glasgow yesterday in a celebration of LGBT+ rights.
Police and organisers say around 7,000 people took part in Mardi Gla Pride march which brought a sea of colour to the city streets.
The parade began in the West End at Kelvin Way, before making its way into the city centre to a finishing point at George Square.
A statement from the organisers said: “Glasgow is the kind of city where if someone needs some help we tend to rally round and help out – that’s just the way we are as Glaswegians.
“We are a proud city and working together we will show that we are also a proud community.
“As a new grass roots group in our first year, we want this Pride Event to be the foundation to build upon in the years to come as we all work as a community to ensure that our voices are heard loudly and clearly across our city and region.”
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, a watershed moment in the fight for LGBT+ rights.
Another Pride march in Glasgow is scheduled for August 17.
