Pride continues with Erasure on Saturday



Jan loves a bit of Pride.
Back in 1985, singer/songwriter Andy Bell and songwriter Vince Clarke formed the band Erasure.

With the release of the single Sometimes the band established itself as one of the most successful bands in Britain during the 80s to mid-90s.  By the end of the 80s they had broken into the American market and to date have sold over 25 million albums.

Always popular with the LGBT club circuit, the band still performs today to a more mainstream audience.  They are best known for the songs, Oh L'amour, Victim of Love, Blue Savannah and A Little Respect .

Enjoy a tribute to Erasure here in London City on Saturday.  Party starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the show an hour later at 1pm SL time.  Teleport: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/95/104/23

Margarita Pracatan at PRIDE in London City



Margarita Pracatan is a Cuban singer who found unexpected success in the 1990s.

Her big break came on the Clive James TV show where each week Margarita would play out the show, singing  her own unique rendition of a beautiful ballad performed on a Casio electronic organ, often with an unusually fast beat.

Now as part of London PRIDE she  performs a breathtaking show with an unusual orchestra.

A show not to be missed!

Party starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm.

Check out the video from Margarita's first trip to London City:

The Pride Parade





Today was the Pride Parade in London City, ending Pride 2016.

Our sincere thanks to everyone who has attended Pride through June and thank you to the cast and crew of all the shows.  Thank you for making this such a success.   The parade was the usual fiasco it is every year, so enjoy this horribly hurried and rough cut video of Parade.

PRIDE FESTIVAL at London City




Celebrate Pride Festival throughout June in London City.

Top Turns this year include, Judy Garland, Donna Summer, Bette Midler, Abba, The Bee Gees and many more!

With Concerts every week, a funfair and Pride Memorabilia to collect, we think you'll agree that our 7th Pride here at London City is the best one yet!

With London City now an official Community Gateway, many newer residents will probably not have experienced this festival in-world before.  You can see what to expect at London City Pride, from the links below showing some of our previous Pride events:

Pride 2012    Pride 2013    Pride 2014    Pride 2015

The Festival gets under way on Saturday 4th June with Erasure, 11th June with The Bee Gees and the Main Event on Saturday 18th, to tie in with RL London Pride is all day long, featuring Donna Summer, Pants People, One Night in Heaven, Gay Anthems and a surprise LIVE cabaret artist.

Don't forget to check notices from all the London City clubs throughout the Pride season for great events, especially from Madame Lala's, our longest running gay/trans club celebrating its 6th Birthday.

You don't have to be gay, lesbian or trans to enjoy Pride with us.  It's a festival or freedom for open minds.  So get shopping for some great costumes.   It is positively inexcusable to looks drab!
