UK Celebrates Pride

Here’s a Pride Month story I somehow missed.  The UK had a special 50 pence coin minted to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pride (the first UK Pride march took place in London in 1972).  Not only do they have a coin, they have a special collection of Pride stamps issued by the Royal Mail, which depicts members of the leather community, drag queens, and same-sex couples.  If people only still wrote letters…

Sexy singer Darren Hayes (formerly of Savage Garden) posted a Pride photo on Instagram which was banned.  The photo in question featured Hayes fully dressed, lounging on his bed, with a naked man laying face down on his crotch.  You know what they say – location, location, location.  While somewhat risqué, it should be noted no private parts were shown nor actions implied.  And yet, Instagram felt he was “soliciting sex”.
