About the Latinx Float at Pride in London 2022 Parade
The Pride in London parade will be held on Saturday 2nd July 2022. This year is a significant year for the Pride movement and the LGBT+ community as we commemorate 50 years since the first Pride took place in the United Kingdom.
At the Pride in London Parade, Exilio London will be representing the Latinx LGBTQ+ community and making history for the Latinx LGBTQ community of London.
Exilio will parade through the city with a Carnival Butterfly Troupe. Artistic Director Julio Manozalba, chose the theme “BUTTERFLY” as a symbol of hope, transformation, and a post-pandemic new beginning. Behind the Exilio float, we have pre-hispanic giant puppets accompanied by Colombian traditional dancers “SOMOS CHIBCHAS” and Brazilian drummers “BAQUE DE AXÉ”; a London-based band playing traditional Maracatu Carnival percussion. On the decks with the best Latin hits, we have Exilio's resident DJ and international sensation DJ G, one of London's top female DJs, and beside her Dj Don Omar. Performing on the Exilio float will be Roce 40 the Latin-owned record label bringing Carnaval Bangers Bora Bora & Tiki Taka songs featuring P Man, Guala, Don Jaga Jonan, and La Famosa. Alongside them we also have London’s Latin superstar Sachellys, Inspired by the sounds of salsa legends and mixing it with a splash of R&B Sachellys created her own sound as a Colombian straight outta London.
The Latinx Float will be displaying all the colorful and vibrant colors of Latin Pride making it the most captivating of floats.
