Queen says yes to gays - London travel

Queen Elizabeth has granted permission for Purple in the Park, a gay pride festival, to be part of this weekend's Golden Jubilee events. Festival spokesman Colm Howard-Lloyd told the London Telegraph, "We usually hold the festival in August, but we moved this year's event forward so that it could be part of the celebrations. . . . In recognition of the royal theme, Purple in the Park will include a special Jubilee parade, with 100 drag queens."

What bollocks!

Purple In The Park, held for the first time this year, may have been held on the Golden Jubilee weekend but definitely was not part of the Jubilee events.

The event is a GLBT music festival not Pride or carnival and did not have any parade or procession.
