London LGBT Pride was a wet but happy day. There were fewer visible bis of colour, but lots of people of colour throughout the parade, which was great to see. It was also good to see the positive religious groups like Imaan for LGBT Muslims, the gay Sikh group, and the various Christian LGBT groups. Religion, sexual orientation and ethnicity don’t have to cancel each other out!

Unfortunately, there were a couple of hateful comments from fellow marchers that did put a sour note on the day. It’s a real shame when a LGBT event includes having (mostly white gay men) shout “Breeders!” & “Switcheroos! at the bisexuals. Seems that some folks have forgotten that the B in LGBT isn’t silent. Bisexuals are part of the LGBT communities. It was great to march with them, and show the world that we belong!
