Microsoft at Pride in London 2019: in pictures

More than 100 Microsoft staff took part in this year’s Pride parade in London on Saturday.

The LGBTQ+ event attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors to the capital, who lined the route from Portland Place, down Oxford Circus, along Regent Street to Piccadilly Circus, Lower Regent Street, Pall Mall and then passing Trafalgar Square to Whitehall.

Microsoft had a float in the march for the first time, and many of those taking part were members of GLEAM, Microsoft’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employee resource group, which has a strong following globally.

This year, Pride in London was celebrating 50 years since the birth of the modern LGBT+ rights movement. Here’s what happened:
