When the UK’s longest-running gay pride celebration – the annual Notting Hill Carnival – was cancelled due to a severe weather event in the UK, it had sparked debate over the definition of “gay”.
Now, the answer has been revealed.

The event takes place on April 19 in a wide range of locations in the capital, including the Houses of Parliament, the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge.
This year’s event has been described by organisers as the largest, most diverse and most colourful gay pride event in Britain since Pride Glasgow in 1998.
“It’s like a festival.
There are thousands of different events, so you can do anything you like,” said Simon Johnson, from the Queer People Against Cissexism, in a video promoting the parade.
It has been dubbed “the most diverse, the most diverse in the world, the gayest parade in the whole of Europe” by gay rights group GLAAD.
The parade is also expected to draw thousands of people, with organisers estimating the attendance will be between 10,000 and 20,000.
As the first-ever gay pride festival in the country, Notting Hill is also the largest in the United Kingdom, according to the annual Gay Pride Index, which includes events in London, Liverpool and Manchester.
What is the Notting Hill parade?
The Notting Hill carnival is one of the biggest gay rights events in the West Midlands.
It’s usually held at a central location and usually runs from May 5-20.
At its heart, the event is about celebrating and celebrating.
It starts with a “kiss of welcome”, where the organisers invite all those who wish to attend to come to a reception to celebrate their love and acceptance of all people.
There is also a procession called the “charity march”, which is led by the Stonewall Foundation, the UK charity that fought for equal rights for gay people.
The march is led and led by gay people from all walks of life, and they are accompanied by other LGBT people, to show support and pride for the LGBT community.
In recent years, it has been marred by controversy and tension due to the use of a “cloak of secrecy” during the parade and the exclusion of women from the march, which is often attended by men.
But the organisers of the carnival say it is “a celebration of all”.
“Everyone is welcome to come and see this year’s carnival, whether you’re gay or straight, and it’s a celebration of the LGBT movement and our equality as a people,” said David Grieve, from Notting Hill’s Parade Organisers Association.
Is it legal to be gay in Britain?
According to a recent report by the Equality and Human Rights Commission, Britain is one the few countries in Europe where it is illegal to be homosexual.
If you are arrested for being gay, you are likely to be fined and imprisoned.
If you have a gay family member or friend, you may also be arrested and prosecuted.
Homosexuality is a crime in the US, but the Justice Department has said that this does not apply to state and local governments.
How to get involved in the Notting Hall carnival?
There are several ways to get on to the parade route.
You can take part in a “pumpkin patch” which takes place between 8am and 6pm, when the sun sets over the capital.
Alternatively, you can join in the march.
This is a short walk from the Houses on the Upper Street, or you can walk to the Tower by the Thames Bridge.
The parade itself can be organised by individuals, groups, unions and organisations, such as the National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce.
The parade will also include a variety of community activities, including a “glitter” parade on the Tower.

However, you will be required to wear a t-shirt, a hat and some other attire that you have bought.
You can also dress as you wish, but you will have to put on your own mask and be seen by other members of the public.
