East End Gay Pride cancelled
by Jessica Geen
East End Gay Pride has been cancelled, the organisers have announced.
In a statement this morning, they blamed "personal attacks" and a "personal vendetta" against them by local gay campaigners.
The march was due to be held on April 2nd as a response to anti-gay stickers plastered around London's East End.
But it quickly became controversial, as local groups Rainbow Hamlets and Out East accused the march of being a front of the English Defence League (EDL) and claimed that it would cause tensions between gay people and Muslims in the area.
