Love happens here: The very best lawyer photos from London Pride
Includes a dog in a barrister’s wig wearing a Hawaiian lei
Lawyers took to the glitter-laden streets of London this weekend to march for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) rights at the Pride in London Parade.
Approximately 30,000 people — including models Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid, Olympian Tom Daley, and Mayor of London Sadiq Khan — attended the celebration, which saw a rainbow flag projected onto the Houses of Parliament for the first time.
Legal professionals have been sharing their experiences using the hashtag #legalpride on social media. We have been spoilt for choice this year when it comes to great photos, but this tweet in particular did catch our eye:

Not least because it is a great pic — but because it looks an awful lot like the dog in the wig we spied at last year’s Pride!

The adorable Jack Russell, who is called Madge, belongs to barrister and mediator Simon Robinson of Five Paper. She’s accompanied Robinson to Pride in 2013 and 2014 too.

If photos of dogs in wigs aren’t your thing, 1) why not? and 2) there were plenty more weekend photos pushing Pride’s ‘love happens here’ mantra. Take this fetching law bus:

There is, of course, that age old Pride problem: is anyone still finding glitter in their hairline this morning?

Or their beard?
It really was glitter galore:

Which were also made into badges and handed out as freebies:
We hoped you all enjoyed London Pride 2017 as much as we did!
