Dundee played host to its first-ever Trans Pride march in the city centre on Saturday.
Around 300 people took part, setting off from the McManus museum at 1pm on the way to the Nethergate in the Spring sunshine.
Flags and colourful t-shirts brought a peaceful and energetic vibe to the city’s main streets with the party expected to continue at the Bonar Hall with workshops and performances from trans artists.
The 20-strong SheBooms group arrived from Glasgow to add a carnival atmosphere with the sound of drums reverberating down Reform Street and on to the City Square.
Organisers say they are holding the event because transgender people often “feel ostracised” due to a lack of services and fear of judgement from others.
Trans Pride Scotland convener Alex Robin Gardner said they had been left pleasantly surprised with the amount of people joining in.

Alex said: “There’s a reasonable number from Dundee and more from further afield.
“I know a lot of people in the trans community and there are many faces I don’t recognise so that’s great.”
Swedish Abertay University student Panterlo Natiello, who identifies as non-binary, was one of those joining in with the march.
The 20-year-old, who is part of the LGBT+ group at Abertay, said: “It’s a great turnout and it’s so exciting for the city.
“It feels like not too long ago that people in this community had to hide.”
It is only the second national trans march to take place in Scotland with the inaugural event having taken place last year in Edinburgh.
