Protesters rally against a non-existent drag event

Protesters rally against a non-existent drag event

Protesters stood outside an empty pub on Friday morning

to rally against a non-existent drag event.

Turning Point UK had organised a demonstration at The Great Exhibition pub in East Dulwich for 11:00 GMT.

A counter protest was organised by Stand up to Racism South London, with local people and pro LGBT+ activists meeting at 10:00 GMT.

Turning Point UK said it was "very pleased with the result of our protests".

The protest was organised in response to an out of date event listing on the pub's website.

A spokesperson for CLIP, which hosted a Drag Storytime event at the venue in July 2022, told BBC London that the venue's website was still showing the event as running monthly because the listings had not been updated.

Around 200 people were seen outside the pub and Met Police officers were in attendance.

They added that CLIP had stopped running all Drag Storytime events "due to concerns over opposing protesters breaching their safeguarding policy".

Turning Point UK organised four speakers for its protest, including Lawrence Fox and Calvin Robertson, who attended another protest last month about a drag storytelling event at The Honor Oak pub in Forest Hill.

'No event'

A spokesperson for The Great Exhibition pub confirmed that there had never been a Drag Storytime event booked for today.
