Every colour in the rainbow is being paraded around Margate this afternoon as part of the town's Pride festival.
The celebration of LGBTQI life has taken over the streets in Thanet as a chance for everyone of any gender or sexual orientation to enjoy liberation.
It's thought at least 1000 people are involved in the parade this afternoon.
It will wind its way through the town today starting from the Walpole Bay Hotel and be followed by a rally and street party from 3pm, with other events on around the town.
Now in its third year, organisers say it is a 'culture-rich contemporary pride', run by Dan Chilcott, singer Tommy Poppers and Sink The Pink co-founder Amy Zing.
Run by a committee, the event supports bringing LGBTQI services to the area.
Vanessa White from the girlband the Saturday's has also taken to Instagram to share her moments in Margate today.
The event is also a festival of the arts has events ranging from banner making workshops to drag queen story time.
