Hundreds of people are expected to march through Glasgow city centre today to celebrate LGBT rights.

The Mardi Gla Pride march is the latest in a series of events taking place around the world marking the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots.

It is the first of two marches in support of the LGBT community expected to take place in Glasgow over the summer.

Last year's event was hit by issues when people with tickets were denied entry to a post-march festival.

They will make their way from Kelvin Way to Sauchiehall Street, Blythswood Street and West George Street before finishing at George Square.
