Happy London Pride!

It’s been raining and there have been car bombs in London but I hope that doesn’t affect the day.
And here’s why it’s still important:
The Observer, Coming out of the dark ages
“For most people the Sixties was a time of sexual awakening and experimentation. But it wasn’t until 1967 that gay and bisexual men could share that freedom. On the 40th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality, we revisit the appallingly repressive atmosphere of the Fifties and Sixties that ruined lives, destroyed reputations and finally sparked a campaign for change”
The situation might have changed in the UK – this has been the summer of Civil Partnerships – but Pride marches are attacked in Moscow, Riga and gay rights are still a dream in many places around the world.
