Pride TT and other supporting groups took to the streets on Sunday as members of the LGBT+ community and allies celebrated five years of its pride parade.
Although the community has celebrated pride (an event replicated globally) for more than 30 years, it was only 2018 that the first pride parade was held.
Scores of people gathered at Rust Street, St Clair and danced along Gray Street, then to St Clair Avenue at the British High Commission, then to Nelson Mandela Park and ended at Rust Street. Some of the participants wore Carnival costumes and danced to soca.
