The march will start at noon outside the City Chambers, headquarters of the city’s council. It will work its way down the famous Royal Mile, taking in Edinburgh’s historical sights and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender venues.

It will end up at the Omni Centre, where there will be speeches and a health and community fair. More events are planned and a full programme of entertainment will be announced on Pride Scotia’s website in the upcoming weeks.

The Scottish branch of activist group the Order of Perpetual Indulgence, an international group of gay male nuns, are putting on a Tea Dance for all ages in nightclub Mood from 2 to 5pm. They will provide free tea, cake and sandwiches and music of the 1920s and 30s.
