    Transphobia really angers me – there’s no need for it. Loving Roz’s sense of humour tho – go girl!

  3. I guess that this sometimes happens at such a big event. you can’t guarantee everything will be perfect no matter how much you try. I think I feel sorry for both sides so glad it looks like lesson learnt and move on to making sure it dont happen again.

    No mention of the problem with the policeman who attended and asked to see Roz’s Gender reasignment cert which is against the Law!

    Even if you put transwomen in the women’s loo and transmen in the men’s loo, what happens to the trans-whatsits? The boths, the neithers, the beards-and-dresses, and so forth? Demanding everyone fit into the (even re-assigned!) gender binary on Pride day is a bit harsh. Perhaps somebody ought to get up a campaign for unisex loos?

  6. wasnt this a little britain sketch, or am i getting my trans whatsits mixed up?

  7. There were loads of unisex toilets at the event – banks of them up at Soho and on Trafalgar Square behind the stage bit. It’s only these ones which were there already that have male and female. Maybe they should be closed on the day to force everyone to use the unisex ones and save any rows.

  8. “We hold very dearly our commitment to equality.

    yeah, right. As long as the people aren;’t trans or anything.

    Silly f@gs, hate and CYA lying are wrong.

    Silly f@gs
    ?
    Discrimination, hatred, name calling. All wrong. Don’t use this as an excuse to divide the LGBT. Shame on you Alyssa! Shame on you…
