UK PM wife Sarah Brown is to march at Gay Pride in London this Sat as a show of her solidarity with the LGBT community

PinkNews reports that Sarah Brown, wife of UK PM Gordon Brown, will march at Pride London as a show of solidarity with the LGBT community. She will join the main Pride event after the reception at No. 1o Downing street early in the morning.
The wife of the Prime Minister is to show her solidarity with the LGBT community this Saturday when she will march in the Pride London parade.

On Saturday morning Gordon and Sarah Brown will host a small reception at 10 Downing St for Pride organisers, gay rights campaigners and representatives of the pink press.

A Downing St spokesman told

"Because of security considerations, the Prime Minister will not be able to march himself, but Sarah wanted to show her continued solidarity for the gay community by taking part.

"The Prime Minister will be showing his support at the reception on the morning of Pride."

It is thought to be the first time a Prime Minister's spouse has taken part in Pride but it is not the first time Gordon and Sarah Brown have demonstrated their support for gay equality.
