    In the article it says:

    On top of this, organisers of St Petersburg Pride who said they turned to 13 Embassies of EU member States plus the US, Canada, Norway and Switzerland, claim to have received not one public statement of support in return.

    Here is an opportunity for Theresa May to demonstrate that she is committed to equality for LGBT people!

    After all in the article she wrote for PinkPaper entitled “We Need Cultural Change” she wrote:

    We can be proud that the UK is a world leader in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality

    If the UK is a world leader in LGBT equality we can be certain it has nothing to do with Theresa May, but hey, aren’t we all to put that past behind us now?

    Surely now Theresa May can show how the UK is a world leader by making a high profile intervention supporting the organisers of St Petersburg Pride?

    C’mon Theresa!

  3. “Here is an opportunity for Theresa May to demonstrate that she is committed to equality for LGBT people!”

    HA!!!

    With her appalling voting record on LGBT equality matters, I wouldn’t hold your breath!

  4. The article is illustrated by a symbol of the Russian LGBT-Network – the organisation that fights AGAINST pride, being an LGBT-Organisation, though.)))))))
