To: Michael Salter, Chairman of Pride in London

There's no place for UKIP in London Pride

05/06/15 Petition starter David followed up the campaign with a Comment is free article in the Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/jun/05/pride-parade-ukip-queer-activists-lesbians-gays-miners-racism.

This campaign and other pressures from across the LGBT community led to the organisers of Pride announcing that UKIP's application to march had been rejected:

There's no place for UKIP in London Pride

Ban all groups from Pride who are racist, homophobic, and hateful towards people with HIV -- including UKIP.

Why is this important?

In just a few days, the UK Independence Party will march in London Pride -- unless we stand up.

UKIP opposes same-sex marriage.

Their leader, Nigel Farage, says immigrants with HIV should be banned from the UK.

Secretary general Matthew Richardson has called trans women "she-males."

PPC Alan Harris has said "why cant i say in my own bloody country black is still a colour and gay are still queers."
