A number of diplomats will be in the crowd brandishing rainbow flags after ambassadors from 36 countries issued a joint letter of support for the parade, and a rights survey ranked Poland as one of the weakest EU countries for legal protection for LGBTI people.

“The truth is that we do not really have any legal rights to protect,” said Jej Perfekcyjność, an organiser of the annual event, formerly a gay rights march now rebranded as an equality parade in an attempt to broaden its appeal to all minorities.

“We expect a record crowd because many people have joined demonstrations against this government in the past few months. We need a big crowd to make sure things do not get worse,” he added, aiming for a crowd of 30,000.

London Attacks: ‘Multiple Casualties’ After Incidents at London Bridge, Vauxhall and Borough Market

A van mowed down pedestrians as it sped down London Bridge in the British capital Saturday night, leaving bodies lying in the roadway, a witness to the incident told CNN.

Also Saturday, a man with a “massive knife” entered a restaurant at Borough Market, just south of the bridge, and stabbed two people inside, a witness told CNN on Saturday.

• Authorities have not provided details of the incident or said how many people are hurt.

Mark Roberts, the witness on the bridge, said the van was traveling south across the River Thames at a high rate of speed and was swerving as it struck several people, knocking one person “about 20 feet into the air.”

5 Reasons Traveling The World (ALONE) Is An EPIC Cure For Heartbreak


An unexpected healing from heartbreak.

You’re getting over a recent breakup, and you’ve found yourself in a rut. You’ve always wanted to go to another country, but maybe you were waiting on the right guy so you two could travel the world together.

Ummm… you DON’T need that person to make you happy! You might feel uncertain and don’t think that world travel can help relieve those post-breakup blues, but you can experience something wonderful and heal your heart at the same time.

Here are some reasons why traveling the world is one of the coolest things in life you could do for yourself:

1. It helps get you out of a rut.

2. Traveling forces you to think of life differently.

Being in transit — be it a plane/train/bus — can inspire you to wonder about the bigger picture. It can help you question your motivations and see the details that you might miss when you’re in everyday life.

It can even make you feel grateful for the things you DO have, instead of focusing on the sadness of a relationship gone sour.

3. Being able to observe a different culture is an incredible gift.

The sights. The sounds. The smells, even! This full immersion into a completely different environment will create new thoughts, new feelings, new emotions, and open you up to ideas and experiences you’ve never had before. The customs of this new place will surprise and even astound you at times and you won’t have time to think about ol’ what’s-his-name

Rare Photos Of Freddie Mercury And His Boyfriend From 1980s Reveal The Unseen Side Of Him


Freddie Mercury was a hero in life and is a legend in death.

Freddie Mercury met Jim Hutton at a club in 1984 when he offered to buy Jim a drink, and he politely turned him down. Jim didn’t recognize Freddie but a few months later while at a restaurant his friend told him: “Hey, Freddie Mercury is behind you.” Jim this time accepted Mercury’s drink and the two talked for a while, but nothing happened for another year.

About eighteen months later, the two happened to meet again at the same club. Freddie once again bought Jim a drink and this time they got together. Jim ended up moving in the Garden Lodge with Freddie about two years later.


Even when Mercury was dying of AIDS, the pair were inseparable. The lead singer for Queen even gave him a way out, Hutton was adamant to stay. In a documentary about his death, he said his response was no, and his exact words were “I love you, Freddie. I’m not going anywhere.”

And he didn’t. The hairdresser stayed by him until he passed.

Decades later, even if we haven’t personally seen them, we’ve all experienced them through his music. And these photos sneak a peek into the intimate and secretive life of the rock star.


Leo Varadkar Becomes Ireland’s First Openly Gay Prime Minister

He received the publicly declared support of almost two-thirds of the parliamentary party, who account for 65 percent of the vote.

Bar any unexpected development, the former doctor will be voted in as Ireland’s prime minister when parliament next sits on June 13.

He said this week: ‘If somebody of my age, of my mixed race background and of all the things that make up my character can potentially become leader of our country, then I think that sends out a message to every child born today that there is no office in Ireland that they can’t aspire to.’

Varadkar’s father Ashok, who is also doctor, was born in Mumbai in India.

He met his wife Miriam, an Irish nurse, in England in the 1970s before moving to Ireland, where their son was born.

On his 36th birthday in January 2015 during an interview on Ireland’s RTÉ Radio, Mr Varadkar spoke publicly for the first time about being gay.

Gay Man Makes History By Marrying Cop Killed In Terrorist Attack

Paris mayor Hidalgo

Etienne Cardiles’ marriage to the late Xavier Jugelé is attended by Paris mayor Hidalgo and former president Hollande.

The city’s mayor, Anne Hidalgo, and the former French president François Hollande attended the wedding on Tuesday of Etienne Cardiles to the late Xavier Jugelé.

Jugelé, 37, was shot dead on 20 April while on duty three days before the first round of France’s presidential election.

He had campaigned for LGBT rights within the police service.

At a moving remembrance ceremony led by Hollande on 25 April, Cardiles said the killer would “not have my hatred”, echoing the words of the husband of a victim of the November 2015 attacks in Paris.

“I have no hatred, Xavier, because it is not like you and does not fit with what made your heart beat nor what made you a guardian of the peace,” Cardiles said.

Jugelé was the fifth police officer killed in terrorist attacks that have claimed more than 230 lives across France since January 2015.

Hollande posthumously made him a knight of the Legion of Honour, one of France’s highest honours.

Crazy Pat Robertson Thinks Gays Should Have to Wear Special Colors

Pat Robertson

American media mogul, Pat Robertson believes that homosexual people should be required to wear “specially-coloured clothes” as a way of identifying themselves and warning straight people of their sexuality.

“We need to stop spreading lesbianism and homosexuality … the only way to stop the spread of these diseases that are plaguing the country is to make some sort of obvious distinction between gay people and normal, straight people.”

“That way, regular people would know that the person wearing the said color is a deviant sodomite and that they need to stay away from them at all cost, as well as keep their children away from their reach.”

“I personally believe that we must impose a rule on the gay population that would require them to wear specially-colored clothes, for example. I’m thinking we need to go through the Senate with this and we need to make it official. That way, regular people would know that the person wearing the said color is a deviant sodomite and that they need to stay away from them at all cost, as well as keep their children away from their reach,” Robertson opined.

Twitter Slams Ivanka Trump Over LGBT Tweet

Ivanka Trump

Ivanka Trump emerged from observing the Jewish holiday of Shavuot to commemorate the start of LGBT Pride Month 2017, perhaps extending an olive branch to more liberal supporters disappointed she was not able to change her father’s mind on the Paris climate agreement.

“Logging back on after Shavuot, wishing everyone a joyful #Pride2017. This month we celebrate and honor the #LGBTQ community,” Trump tweeted Thursday evening.

People condemned Ivanka for appearing to support the LGBT community when her own father had nominated cabinet members who have a history of taking anti-gay stances, as well as passing laws that threatened the civil rights of the community.

One user suggested that Ivanka’s claim to side with the LGBT community was farcical because she does not have any friends who represent that community. Another user seemed utterly in disbelief over the fact that Ivanka would even post such a tweet.

“#TheySaid you’re getting so fat you won’t be able to come back from that.”

Founder and CEO of the athletic wear company Oiselle Sally Bergesen definitely remembers one of the first times she was body-shamed. “’Keep eating like that and you’re going to be a butterball.’ My Dad when I was 12,” Bergesen tweeted on May 25.

It’s no surprise that the hashtag #TheySaid started trending a couple of days ago on Twitter, which has become a stream of crap things people have said about women’s bodies.
