A spokesperson from Southampton Pride said: "We believe that our event is so important for the city to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion, in a world where there is still so much discrimination and hate.
"On Pride day, everyone in Southampton can celebrate together and just be happy being who they are without fear of judgement."
