Thousands of LGBT activists joined a Black Lives Matter protest in London on Saturday, with protesters marching across the city to Hyde Park.
Members of the black queer community were protesting against inequality, racism and homophobia, in the wake of several demonstrations in the UK and worldwide.
“If you have a movement that says ‘Black lives matter’ then that must mean all black lives matter. Black trans lives, black homosexual lives, cisgender heterosexual black lives, black children, black adults, black non-binary individuals. Everyone needs to be represented by the same umbrella,” said a protester.
It was the fourth consecutive weekend of protests in London, as anti-racism actions continue following the death of 46-year old George Floyd at the hands of police in the US last month.
