160,000 people have lined the streets of Brighton for the 25th anniversary of the city's Pride festival.
The procession itself was delayed by 90 minutes due to the discovery of a 'suspicious package' on the seafront but it was destroyed by police and the event continued along a diverted road, avoiding the seafront.
Here are the some of the most fantastic images from this year's festival:
Revellers add the final touches to their face paint before the parade kicks off.
Taking accessories to a whole new level with matching cupcakes.
A reveller twerks his way through a bunch of lillies.
The Brighton Gay Men's Chorus Float soaks up the atmosphere.
A group of teachers make the most of the summer holidays.
The warm conditions delighted this particular visitor, over from Lapland.
Even the police can find the time to have a bit of boogie at Pride.
And a wonderful rainbow corset...
