From the FCO email update thing I get:

Minister for Europe David Lidington and Minister for Equalities Lynne Featherstone have spoken ahead of Belgrade Pride this Sunday.

“The pride season is now drawing to a close, and as ever it has acted as a reminder that we all need to continue to promote equal opportunities and continue to work towards equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people. There have been so many successful pride events around the world, and as we look forward to Belgrade Pride it is heartening to see the events being so well supported.

This government is determined to take the action needed to build a fairer society, both in the UK, around Europe and across the world.”


Haven’t noticed the Warsaw Gay Pride thing being about a fairer society. Here in Poland assorted feminists and gay activists are  trying to bring down the equal opportunities minister because she’s a Catholic!  (There’s another oxymoronic movement-in-the-name-of-non-discrimination to introduce male/female quotas for MPs …)
