One of the many reasons I voted to boycott Pride is that, after last year, when my good time was wrecked by security guards, at the Trafalgar Square toilets, who then proceeded to try and frame one of my friends for assault, and created a situation in which another trans woman was sexually assaulted, the very last thing I want is to go on a march, surrounded by security guards, for my own protection.
Who are they protecting me against, pray? Themselves?
I for one don't want those people anywhere near me. Since I am thought of by their manager as a trouble maker, I wouldn't feel safe.
