No, I wasn't there; needed a day to relax.

However, the BBC are reaching their usual levels of journalism and are referring to it as a "Gay and Lesbian" event.

I have sent them a short nastygram:

You refer in this story to Pride as a "Gay and Lesbian" event. It is in fact, as per the Pride London site, an 'LGBT event'. That includes Bisexuals and Transpersons.

Please try and be accurate and inclusive. It's bad enough Stonewall spending half their time pretending Bisexuals don't exist without being dropped for brevity's sake from reports on major public events.

They passed us as we were setting up before the march started - they did look amazing, like real live Barbie dolls!
