It may have skipped your notice that Big London is hosting the Olympics in 2012. We’re busy shifting our rather nice-even-if-we-do-say-so north Londinium gaff eastwards, milimitre by milimitre, so that come four years down the line it will be within a hop, skip and a 100m dash of all that sports-related brouhaha and we’ll be able to rent it out at £700,000 a day to what the press release refers to as a ‘sports fan’.
Anyways plural, the year of the baby G 12 looks like busting at the seams with things of a fun nature, seeing as news has reached us that London has won the battle *yeeeeeeeeeeee-HA!* to stage World Pride. In 2012. Keep up.
Which roughly translates to, ooh, a billion extra gayyyyyyyyyyyysssssss (that’s ‘gays’ in Gay) on the glittering streets of London, to do with as we see fit.
The details are thus:
– 23 June – 8 July, 2012
– Main parade: 7 July
– Makes a note of that
– NB. We realise that picture’s not particularly ‘Mo Pride related. We just thought it was a nice picture, and rumour has it real life gays have been on the London Eye. S’true. Tell all your friends.
