London Celebrates Gay Pride

Hundreds of thousands turned out for London’s gay pride celebration. We have a lot of catching up to do with the UK. They have had civil partnerships since 2005 which provide all the federal rights & protections of heterosexual marriage. As well as gays & lesbians have been openly serving in the military since 2000. Conservative Home Office minister James Brokenshire addressed thousands attending in Trafalgar Square to confirm the government’s commitment to gay rights stating, “As a government we are clear that an equal society is absolutely essential for a stronger & more prosperous Britain, a society based on the values of fairness, dignity & respect. That is why as a government we are committed to advancing lesbian gay bisexual & transgender equality.” Their Gay Pride Parade is Today...:)

As a gay man, I am overjoyed that civil partnerships are there. And, as a gay man, I am not particularly bothered about whether they’re called marriages or civil partnerships. I live my life as a gay man. I don’t ape heterosexuals.

A million people to be taking part on the streets of London for Pride and it’s a glorious event. It is a celebration of who you are and quite honestly, that is what a tolerant city which is broadly at peace with itself, should be.

And many cultures and communities bring music, theatre, poetry, all forms of artwork to the city, and it makes people who they are. And they bring that to the glorious kaleidoscope that is London, as does the gay community, or the LGBT community. And there’ll be just as many who stop at home because it’s not part of who they are.
