Gay Pride in London tinged with post-Brexit nerves
Tens of thousands of people take to the streets of London for the city’s annual pride celebration – a festive event, but one tinged with fears that rights may be lost once Britain leaves the European Union following the recent “Brexit” referendum.
“I do have fears. I think that we have the bedrock of the European Convention on Human rights and that makes such a difference. It is incorporated in the UK law. So we have that but I think it is very much under threat. I think we are going to see a lot of change. We are really worried about the future here. We have rights, we have a great celebration, we have the apparent solidarity of this government. We need to have the EU support as well,” said Andrew Bailey, who took part in the parade.
