Hundreds of people lined the streets of High Wycombe at the weekend as the town centre played host to its first Pride parade. 

Crowds flocked to Frogmoor on Saturday with banners, posters and flags as part of Wycombe's first Pride event to raise awareness of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Pride parades take place globally, campaigning for fairness and equality for the LGBT community.

Former Wycombe High School pupil, Lucy Auger, was inspired to organise High Wycombe Pride after moving away to Norwich for university.

The 20-year-old said the city’s atmosphere and dedication to raising awareness of LGBT rights made her question why a parade had not been organised in High Wycombe.
