Oxford Pride marched on and was called a ‘success’ despite a homophobic attack during the week.
Police are investigating after two men beat up a 29-year-old man in the southern English university city last Tuesday (4 June).
Dave Legg, chair of Oxford Pride, told Gay Star News how an attack like this proves why we need Pride.
‘I was very surprised as Oxford is a very friendly city. We sometimes get homophobic comments, but an attack is very rare,’ he said.
The attack happened after a LGBT equality event at a music venue.
