  3. The nation must get about placing amber alerts and advertisemts and other serious actions against hetersexual crimes period includng bigotry , and sex crimes that all we mainly deal with in national security , is the wicked herersexuals, sick sex crimes, and addictions to children , pedeholioa, and battery and assault you cant even trust hetersexual men around women are the children , if you dont no them the problems are so bad in the hetersexual community, gender, everyone must stand up including all officiials gay or hetersexual against bigotry , and battery violence, , ans sex crimes and pede\philia, , women must protect their kids and friends other women from bad men, start women support groups ,and speak and act , and whistle blow, save lives, its an evil attack by demon possessed and cursed men, and the hetersexual men are cursed a c;urse on our nation and famiieles, the world would be safe anywhere if it where not for these demonic hetersexual men, and their evils and disfuncto

    Well, even a conservative estimate that LGBT people make up 5% of the population still equates to 365 people that should represent us.

    Unfortunately I find the entire Olympics debacle a total embarrassment, and if I was asked, I for one would till them where to stick their torch (preferably lit).

      Precisely.

      £12 billion spent on a p!ss!ng contest in order for its investors to make money.

      This farce is nothing to do with the “spirit” of the olympics.

      1. Agreed.

    You have forgotten Trevor Burchick of Pride Sports Manchester.

    Correction: Trevor Burchick of Northern Wave swim club in Manchester.

  8. So much humbling going on – what an odd choice of word! One would think they might have been honoured rather.

  9. This should be also used as a torch to bring light to the LGBT movement so we can all work together the for freedom for all LGBT people around the world. Not just LGBT people but their friends and family and supporters who want to see LGBT people go free the same as any other person this year.

    It’s exciting to see acceptance of the LGBT community is growing particularly in the sports arena. We recently wrote about “You Can Play Project” and how it Teams LGBT Athletes and Straight Allies. Drop by and have a read: http://www.miratelinc.com/blog/you-can-play-project-teams-lgbt-athletes-and-straight-allies/

  11. As long as the Doctor is there.
