Why we need Pride

Posted in LGBT with tags , on June 27, 2022 by telescoper

With this year’s Pride month coming to an end I was appalled to see this vile image posted on Twitter from deranged right-wing moron, anti-vax loon, failed actor and all-round nasty piece of work Laurence Fox. He’s been spouting rubbish for years of course, but this one is completely off the scale.

I’m sure even Mr Fox knows that the Nazis murdered over 10,000 gay men, forcibly castrated many others, and subjected still more to medical experimentation. You can read more about the facts here.

Laurence Fox has also tried to compare the mandatory wearing of face coverings with Nazi ideology and other nonsense, so it seems he has a persecution complex a mile wide. The trouble is that he’s just the tip of the iceberg. There are plenty of others who share his agenda of hate. Pride is an expression of solidarity and is needed just as much now than it was when it started 50 years ago.
