London Pride 2018: Royal Air Force officer performs perfect floss during parade

An RAF officer has brought smiles to London Pride celebrations after he performed The Floss dance for revellers.

More than one million people took to the streets in central London to mark the annual Pride parade, which featured members of the armed services and emergency services walking.

The parade began at midday on Saturday, July 7, from Portland Place and passed through Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square before finishing at Whitehall.

Among those celebrating, were scores of groups and organisations who played their part in the parade.

One member of the parade caught pride-goer’s attention, as an RAF officer was caught doing the popular Floss dance.

The Floss – which originates from Instagram-famous American schoolboy, Russel Horning (the backpack kid) – has been sweeping social media and has seen the likes of Millie Bobby Brown, from Stranger Things, and Dele Alli trying to recreate it.

The RAF officer’s moves were caught on video by That Lady Kitty, who said: “London Pride 2018 was so much fun, shout out to this guy in the Royal Air Force doing The Floss.”

Nearly 30,000 people took part in the official parade, which was opened by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.

This year saw nearly 500 groups in the parade, with organisers hailing it as “our most diverse yet”.
