Latest London News– Pride in London organizers have apologized after anti-trans protesters “forced their way to the front of the parade”. Its statement said: “The protest group showed a level of bigotry, ignorance and hate that is unacceptable.  We reject what this group stands for. They do not share our values, which are about inclusion and respect and support for the most marginalized parts of our community.

Members of lesbian and feminist group Get the L Out demanded to march behind the rainbow flag, which marks the start of the event, organizers said. It said they could not forcibly remove the small group because their protest was not a criminal offense, adding “we are sorry” but the “actions of eight people did not stop the joy and love”.

The parade, which coincided with England’s World Cup quarter-final in Russia, included about 30,000 people from 472 organizations. “We are proud of our trans volunteers, proud of the trans groups that are in our parade, proud of our trans speakers at events and proud of the trans people who take part in our campaigns and proud of those who cheered even louder for them yesterday.”

Patricia Curtis, of TransPals, said: “It’s disappointing that anti-trans activists decided to hijack the front of a parade, an insult to all the hardworking staff in the NHS whose place they stole.”But their vile stunt failed. London is a place that doesn’t tolerate hate”.

A Get, The L Out spokeswoman said: “We protested to protect our rights and on behalf of all the lesbians intimidated, threatened and silenced by the GBT community everywhere. “The GBT community today, by supporting the rights of males who “identify as lesbians” over the rights of lesbians to choose their sexual partners is, in fact, enforcing heterosexuality on lesbians. “This is a misogynistic and anti-lesbian manifestation of the rape culture we live in”.
