National Pride March: Pointless

A gay activist from New York has announced plans for a mass LGBT protest after being inspired by hundreds of thousands of women who marched in Washington DC last week.

David Bruinooge from Brooklyn, NYC, posted plans on Facebook for a march in the capital on June 11, in response to fears within the LGBT community that President Donald Trump’s administration threatens equality rights.

Mr Bruinooge, who works in television, told the Washington Blade: “I was watching the events [of the women’s march] unfold on TV and I was very proud and inspired by all the women, the strong women in our country who were kind of taking this to the street and getting their voices heard.

“And in the back of my mind as an openly gay man I thought the gay community should be doing something like this to follow up on the momentum,” he added...


The Independent. 

This is so juvenile.

Apolitical piggybacking

'They've had a march so why don't we have one?'

'What's it going to achieve?'

'Erm...'

I hope no-one turns up to this wanky exercise in collective narcissism.
