Uninhibited revellers got up close to London mayor, Boris Johnson, on Saturday as the UK capital celebrated Gay Pride.
Partygoers dressed in radiant colours - and some decked out in very little at all - had their chance to see the mayor as he kicked off the event.
Undaunted by the attention, Boris marched alongside other politicians in the parade which ran from Baker Street to Trafalgar Square where they participated in cultural events and listened to speeches.
An estimated one million people attended the celebrations on the streets of central London.
