Others, including Shon Faye, picked up on the lack of inclusion:
'It is clear we misjudged'
In response to the criticism it received, Pride in London released a statement on their website:
As part of our theme to celebrate Love Happens Here we asked people, whether LGBT+ or straight, to send their messages of love for Pride. We then asked some wonderful artists to turn some of these messages into a series of posters.
It is clear we misjudged the content of some of the messages in this poster series, undermining the individuality, importance, and dignity of the LGBT+ community. This was never our intention, and we are genuinely sorry to have played any part in something that appears to devalue our own community, and have removed these four images from our campaign.
The campaign has led to a number of people making their own posters in protest.
OK, I've done four of these now, that's enough. You can make your own if you want to contribute to the fun!… https://t.co/MGyJPGWXtZ
