Dame Kelly Holmes among those celebrating London\'s \'biggest ever pride\'

Dame Kelly Holmes told Pride attendees “we all deserve to have our voices heard”

She said: “I could never speak before but I have realised no matter if you lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, black, white, short, tall, big, small, however you identify and even being straight, we have the right to stand side by side with each other, we all deserve to have our voices heard.

“As I said at the Pride Awards last week, freedom is my voice. I would like you all to say with me freedom is my voice.”

The crowd then joined her in chanting “freedom is my voice”.

Dame Kelly also spoke of the support she received after coming out.

She said: “Those that follow me on social media, the messages, like I literally can’t believe, one: the support, but also the deep, deep and meaningful emails and messages that have come from the community and people that have struggled, people are feeling free now.”
