Hundreds of people marched through the streets of Wolverhampton as part of the city's first ever Pride event.

The march celebrated lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities and included leading campaigner Peter Tatchell, best known for his work with LGBT social movements.

The one-mile route started at Market Square yesterday.

Mr Tatchell, aged 60, said: "I was delighted to be part of Wolverhampton's first ever Pride festival and it was great to see so many people turn out to show their support for Pride.

"Wolverhampton Pride is the celebration of being part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the huge contribution they make to the life of Wolverhampton.

"It is also the affirmation of the ongoing battle for equality and human rights. I'd like to pay tribute to the organisers for putting on a fabulous event."
