Stuart Small, the Commercial Director of Pride London gives his thanks:

“On behalf of the Trustees at Pride London I would like to thank all of our sponsors, partners and supporters for the generosity they have shown to us over the past year, without the support of all of these organisations Pride London couldn’t happen each year.

I would firstly like to thank our headline sponsor Smirnoff who have worked tirelessly with us throughout the year to make Pride London 2011 is a huge success and we are excited that they will be working with us again for WorldPride in 2012.

The Mayor of London and the TUC once again have sponsored Pride London in 2011 as they have done for many years, both are special relationships for us and we hope to see them again next year.

Our Gold Sponsors, Out at Tesco who sponsored the family area, Vroom Vroom Vroom who sponsored the amazing new talent on the Pride London Main Stage and FIRE who sponsored the Soho Square Dance Stage and official Pride London party LIBERATION, have all been incredibly fun to work with and we are proud of these hugely successful areas of the Pride London event.

Our partners Gaydar, Coca Cola and Ku Bar have all supported Pride London throughout this year’s event it has been a pleasure to have them on board.

We would also like everyone who has made a personal donation, either time or money, to Keep Pride Free.  You can donate at and find more about volunteering at

Pride London is hugely greatful to all of the other organisations that we work with throughout the year, who do fundraising events, donate products and services and  participate in the event.  Next year is World Pride 2012.  Let us together show the World that London and the UK is the best place on the planet to be L G B or T, show them how diverse we are and allow us to set an example and lead the World in LGBT rights, it is going to be a special event and one that everyone will remember forever in their hearts."
