Tens of thousands of people came out to see Belfast’s annual Pride parade.

The parade set off from Custom House Square at 1pm and marched in a loop through the city centre.

Organisers changed the route this year after Belfast Pride “completely outgrew the old route”.

The parade is billed as both a celebration of the city’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community and as a protest calling for equality.
