Police told a group of lesbians to leave a gay pride march in Cardiff after an officer was filmed telling the gender-critical women to step aside due to ‘confrontation’ with a transgender marchers and their supporters.
The activist group ‘Get The L Out UK’, which ‘stands against transgenderism’, shared footage from yesterday’s Cardiff Pride event.
In the clip, two rival marchers can be seen shouting at each other on St Mary Street during the LGBT march.
Organisers of the event, Pride Cymru, have since claimed the lesbian group – seen displaying banners reading ‘transactivism erases lesbians’ and ‘lesbians don’t like penises’ – had ‘interrupted’ the march, and were not officially registered to attend.
The police officer can be heard saying to the women they are ‘causing confrontation between different groups of people’.
He said: ‘At the moment, your march, this group of people is causing confrontation between different groups of people.’
Women are then heard replying ‘we’re lesbians, it’s Cardiff pride’.
The police officer replies, saying ‘whatever you are… at the moment, is causing confrontation’.
