    I think we ought to have a white heterosexual celebration month. We ought to celebrate all the great things abut being straight and white. And there's a lot of them. We shouldn't shy away from just how great it is to be straight and white.

    We need it to fit against the SJWs who try to tell us otherwise.
    I know you're just winding him up for ****s and giggles, but no-one is technically stopping you from having a white heterosexual celebration month if you want

    But back to the thread, I would like to go to Pride myself one day, haven't got anyone to go with so won't this year, but I've seen videos of pride events and it's just great to see a place where everyone is so happy and free without fear of prejudice and discrimination, the LGBTQ community is obviously in a much better place in this country than most parts of the world, but I know that there still are some gay couples that are afraid to hold hands in public in this country, so it's still not quite a safe haven for the LGBTQ community.

    And I hope that people aren't put off by the safety concerns, I wouldn't blame anyone for not going for that reason, but I hope they go regardless seeing as though one of the whole points of Pride events was a stand against hate. I saw a video a few weeks ago of the first ever Pride event in Serbia that had to have a significant police presence because just round the corner there were angry mobs literally chanting 'kill the gays'. Yet 100s of people against the very real threat of violence, still turned up and had a good time, it was a pretty remarkable show of defiance against such rampant hatred.

    No idea. Even so, not allowed to discuss moderation issues!

    The last time I went here, I was slightly annoyed at how gay culture treated ethnic minorities. I don't think neither Muslims nor Blacks need their special help that they can't get from mainstream society. It's almost like we're congratulating Muslims/Blacks for being so segregating. Indians\East Asians are still a fairly large minority in the UK...

    It's debatable whether the focus on Blacks that happens in the US is acceptable, let alone whether the UK should be doing it too. I prefer the approach taken by many European and Commonwealth countries, where they try not to give preferential treatment to any specific ethnic group.

    Waaaaaah I'm too lazy and/or entitled to do it myself
    Waaaaaaaaaaaah

    If you're so sure It's just a wind up then why bother providing a serious reply?

    I'm going to the parade for the first time, with a bunch of london pride virgins, so can anyone give the lowdown on everything and anything, tips regarding where to stand, times, what to do, where to go. I have honestly no idea...

    Hi guys, I know this is sort of unrelated but I'm going to London for a weekend stay and I was wondering if it's worth it to get an Oyster card or not? I don't drive and I will be using the tube frequently but I don't know how much money it costs without an Oyster card??
