Clapham Common will play host to Pride House, and will welcome an estimated 250,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) visitors from July 26. For 17 days, Pride House will host a number of concerts and events in support of the LGBT community. The first Pride House was hosted in Vancouver and Whistler at the 2010 Winter Games. This will be the second Pride House to join the line-up of Olympic Houses and the first to be present at a Summer Games. Live music, an art exhibition, sports tournaments and demonstrations are expected and big screens will broadcast all the Olympic action.
