Kate Beckinsale celebrated Pride over the weekend through a reimagining of Queen’s ‘I Want to Break Free’ video which saw her demonstrate her finest Freddie Mercury impression.

The star joined up with three friends, including actor Brendan Scannell, to recreate a the iconic video which saw the four band members situated in a suburban house dressed up as women.

In the absence of London Pride, 12 of the surviving Gay Liberation Front activists walked the route the event would've taken, 50 years on from when the group was first established in 1970.

In addition, hundreds of demonstrators participated in a Black Trans Live Matter march in the capital.

Sunday 28 June also marked the 50th anniversary of what is considered to be the first Pride parade which took place in New York in 1970, one year after the Stonewall riots.
