Pride In Protest organised a colourful and successful Mardi Gras march down Oxford Street, taking the event back to its protest roots, reports Rachel Evans and Oscar Bray.

You might expect that this year's Mardi Gras parade, which came just days after the institutional apologies to the original queer rights activists — the 78ers — would be free of the political heavy handedness that launched Mardi Gras as an annual protest march in 1978.
