Gay Pride London, 2006: Fatwa of love.

July 01 2006, category: Actions : Europe, by: admin
On a hot and sunny Saturday 1st July, London hosted EuroPride and we Raelians were out in force to support the Gay community. Together with Deg and Sean from Ireland, we marched for 3 hours through the streets of London spreading our message of love and acceptance and giving out 2,000 flyers. We also carried placards which read "De-Baptise from your Homophobic Religion!" This proved controversial, but still we received much applause when people spied our signs:-)

Thanks to help from the Aussie Raelians, Yvonne and Saul, we were able to design our costumes on theirs and help brighten up an already beautiful day. And what a day! The diversity of the beautiful gay community shone with love, glitter and smiles;-)

After the March we gathered at Trafalgar Square where we had a stall complete with "Fatwa of Love" postcards, and beautiful give-away fridge magnets on which a message reminded folks to "Express your Individuality". And that wasn't our only give-away - we had lots of free books - "Yes to Human Cloning" which we gave to gay couples telling them how they too can have a child of their own.

So many people worked very hard to make this an enjoyable and successful day. We're already looking forward to a bigger and better event next year........
