Organisers are hoping 5,000 people will attend Dundee’s first ever Pride event today.
Stuart Duffy, one of the founders of Pink Saltire, said given the amount of people at previous parades in Perth and Fife, the figure was a reasonable hope if there is good weather.
Pink Saltire and LGBT Youth helped put together the committee who organised Dundee Pride.
Mr Duffy said: “It seems like it will be a really positive day. We are looking forward to it.
“There will be at least 30 different stall holders. Some of the stalls will have charities such as Stonewall there to talk about what they do. I’m sure it will be a fun day.
“It’s hard to say how many people will be there, but after seeing the turnout in Perth and Fife I expect somewhere between 4,500 to 5,000. That’s all dependent on the weather, of course. We’ve been working with Perth Pride as well and I think they are taking a bus load of people with them.”
Dundee University got in the spirit of the parade when they flew the Pride flag above their building on Thursday.
The march will kick-off from City Square at midday, heading through High Street, Murraygate, Panmure Street, Albert Square and Reform Street before returning to City Square at 1pm for live entertainment.
Among the acts will be Zimbabwean-singer Rozalla, known for 90s hit Faith (In The Power Of Love), Scottish singer Allan Jay as well as local talent including Demi McMahon and Ovarian Cysters.
The opening speeches will be by MSP Joe FitzPatrick and Dundee minister Jerry Auld.
NHS Tayside’s sexual health and blood born viruses team will also be at the march.
