What emerged in response to the crisis was actually pretty good, with less commercialism and a great atmosphere.
Maybe what is needed is less bureaucracy, more spontaneity. Too many committees and too much money can just kill something sometimes.
World why inquiry?
Actually . . . whilst many were putting forward the point that it should be more political and less partying . . . many were highlighting the fact that bars / clubs etc are vital for a healthy pride.
Many people are not ‘out’ or feel comfortable taking part in a parade . . .
Some of the issues / talks etc are a bit ‘too’ political and are at times missing the point.
Both are required . . . not one, or the other.
After hosting the best ever Olympic and Paralympic Games ever, I hope that London will go on to host the best ever Gay Pride in the near future. Money is alway an object when it comes to hosting a major public event and there will always be those who oppose such spending.
