“Stand up and be counted!” – Chris Morgan, Gay Games Ambassador & World Champion Powerlifter

Many thanks to  Chris Morgan, Gay Games Ambassador & World Champion Powerlifter, for sharing this with NEVER BLEND IN.

Apparantly, it’s “White Pride Day” ….

So, me being a VERY white person, who likes a damn good Pride Party … Is sitting here thinking … “Oh Goody” !

However, not all is as it first seems because “White Pride” is actually a neo-nazi event that is being planned today in Manchester to mark ‘White Pride Worldwide Day’.

The event is being advertised on the English Defence League website.Which would also indicate that it has something to do with being English?

So, this is where it all now get’s really complicated! …

“I’m not only VERY WHITE, but I’m also an extremely PROUD GAY MAN who has represented ENGLAND and GREAT BRITAIN on many occasions in International Powerlifting”.

Many of my colleagues in the England and Great Britain teams are non white and are from a vast range of diverse backgrounds. They are all my colleagues, competitors, peers, and friends.

We really need to Kick Racism and Homophobia out of Society once and for all !

Stand up and be counted !
