HAMPSHIRE Pride took to the streets to celebrate Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and  Transgender (LGBT) culture.

The second annual Hampshire Pride march took place through the streets of Winchester, starting at the university and ending at the Discovery Centre.

Hundreds of people took part, waiving Pride rainbow flags, singing and chanting.

Moira Smyth, one of the co chairs of Hampshire Pride, said: "We were very excited about it but a bit nervous because we wanted it to be true and to ring true with the county as a celebration where everyone feels welcome."

Sarah-Louise Collins, the second co chair, said: "Events like this are important because people in the community can feel under represented, even now you can see a gay couple walking down the high street and they can get harassed so it is important to show solidarity and acceptance."
