Aberdeen will host its inaugural gay pride parade next summer.
Preparations are under way for the celebration, which is expected to be staged on Union Street, as a collaboration between the city council and the Grampian Regional Equalities Council (GREC).
Pride parades are events celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) culture. They often serve as demonstrations for legal rights such as same-sex marriage.
A council report on the event states: “Plans are under way with Aberdeen City Council, Four Pillars and GREC to bring a Gay Pride event to Aberdeen in the summer of 2018.
“The event is designed to celebrate the LGBT+ community, improve the general public’s awareness of this community, and assist in ACC’s compliance with the Equality Act 2010 General Duty.”
Glasgow and Edinburgh already have popular parades through their city centres.
