Within the storm of normalised homophobia UKIP have created, it is easy to forget the thousands of young LGBT people who are yet to 'come out'.

Nigel Farage can try and pull the wool over our eyes with his usual rhetoric, but Ukip's voting record tells us all we need to know about how Ukip feels on the issue of LGBTI rights and equality.

No matter how much of this amazingly diverse planet one experiences, there can be no substitute for the exquisitely unique annual celebration of Gay Pride. Indeed the collective collaboration over the years between various LGBT groups and those supporting them has brought together a whirlwind of colourful displays by those of us who are out and proud.

I read the stories that surrounded the scaling-down of this year's WorldPride with a sense of dread and just a little déjà vu.

The LGBT position on same sex shouldn't be the apologist line of, "We'll be good, we promise"; it should be we want it because we want equality, not because we have any desire to get hitched.
