Richmond upon Thames's refusal to allow a LGBT event on Little Green
On 29th June 2008, OutWest and The Richmond Arms in Richmond UK organised a Funday to raise money for two charities who support people with HIV/AIDS. In tandem to the Street Party organised and approved by the London Borough of Richmond, OutWest requested the use of Little Green in Richmond to stage a sports day.
Richmond refused and the resulting correspondence between OutWest and councillors and officers of the London Borough of Richmond have led OutWest to believe that there is an element of Homophobia in Richmond's decision.
We are disappointed that a satisfactory reason has not been given for this decision
