Asexual Visibility at London Pride on July 4th

Looks like activists in London are taking a hint from the successful and first ever asexual contingent in an American pride parade and don't want to shy away from making some asexual history of their own!

On Saturday July 4th, London will see its first public asexual visibility campaign at the gay pride parade with participants wearing t-shirts and other items to show their support.

The parade starts off at Baker Street at 1pm and proceeds down Oxford Street and Regent Street taking in some of the major sites of London and calls round through Piccadilly to Trafalgar Square.

To network and get more details check out the thread on AVEN.

Ummm, that's July 3rd.

But it'll be great, I hope. One of the first times we're in a Pride after the San Fran group did it last year. Intending to go myself but a bit nerve wracking cause no idea what the other groups will make of us and trying to figure out if I should let my parents (who I still live with cause, y'know, money) know why I'm really going to London.

But, yeah, should be good. And fun hopefully!

This is going to be awesome. Kinda scary cause I'm not sure how the others there will react to us and I'm still trying to figure out if I should tell parents why I'm really going to London but....

Mostly awesome, and fun. Since a group of us were in the San Fran Pride last year more and more of us have been trying to organise being a part of Prides all over the place. Cause we exist and we're real (and not bacteria) and cake is bloody brilliant.
