STONEWALL UK

 

It’s June 2021 – Pride month – and how better to mark it than with a new page celebrating Stonewall UK?

This page is for links to stories about the once great UK charity for gay men and lesbians, which is now set on a kamikaze mission to alienate as many as possible. There seems to be rather a lot of such stories at the moment, for some reason.

Dawn Butler’s Twitter poll didn’t quite produce the result she expected either. Oh dear, how sad, never mind.
