London Pride went ahead in very difficult circumstances this year, defying the terrorists' attempts to cause chaos in the capital. Celebrities at the event included John Barrowman and Freema Agyeman as well as some important politicians like Harriet Harman.

Unfortunately a planned screening of Dr Who didn't go ahead, but given that CBBC has given extensive coverage to Dr Who, and also given that Newsround has some considerable ground to make up on equality and diversity, there was little excuse for Newsround's failure to give the Pride event at least a mention.
