Today is International Day Against Homophobia. Let’s celebrate love & diversity, and say no to bigotry & intolerance.
In March 2014, Britain embraced change and celebrated genuine love in all its forms by allowing same-sex marriage in England and Wales. Scotland has also passed legislation granting marriage equality. To further show the UK’s support for equality, the British embassy will march with a float at the DC Pride parade in June for the second year. Join us in celebrating diversity and showing our pride.
Britain is alive with pride. Love is GREAT Britain!
