As the Pride Festival kicks off this week, Pride in London will unveil an exclusive pop-up shop in the vibrant district of Seven Dials. Seven Dials will proudly launch the exclusive Pride pop-up, which runs from 10 June until 12 July at 53 Neal Street, in collaboration with the ‘Queen of Shops’, Mary Portas.
The 2019 celebration will be particularly significant as the theme – #PrideJubilee – looks back over the last 50 years since the Stonewall Uprising; the night that started a global movement. On 28 June 1969, members of the LGBT+ community at the Stonewall Inn rose up against continued oppression, triggering a series of events that gave rise to the modern- day Pride movement. The #PrideJubilee marks 50 years of activism, protests and victories that have made Pride what it is today.
The Pride in London pop-up shop will sell the new range of official Pride in London merchandise including clothing, flags and tote bags representing all communities – as well as the first ever bisexual and transgender flag face paints.
The one-stop shop for all things Pride, 53 Neal Street will also act as a community hub and safe space for all those who want to drop in and find out more about Pride. There will be a diverse schedule of talks and workshops, and further details on these will be announced through the Pride in London social media channels and on the Pride in London website.
