To show ‘not all churches are homophobic’, religious groups will be joining with the LGBT community to mark the international day against homophobia and transphobia.
On May 17 eight churches and eight lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) groups will have stands in North End, Croydon, to promote their one love message.
And there will be face painting, bubble blowing and music from acts including Rainbows Across Borders singers, who are made up of LGBT asylum seekers from several countries.
Event spokesman Peter Blackburn said: "We believe that it is important to demonstrate that not all churches are homophobic.
"We want to make this a happy, fun event that the whole community can engage with."
May 17 has been celebrated as the international day against homophobia and transphobia for the past 10 years.
It marks the anniversary of the day in 1990 when homosexuality was removed from the World Health Organisation’s list of mental disorders.
