Major Defeat for British Gay Lobby: Tesco says it won't sponsor London's gay pride march next year

The company has apologised for creating 'misunderstanding and mistrust' and will change its policy in 2013.

The Catholic Herald, UK reports "Tesco will not be sponsoring the London gay pride march in 2013. Readers of this (Catholic Hearald, UK) and William Oddie's blog will remember that we drew attention to Tesco's decision to give (financial support) in sponsorship for a "family area" for this year's march."

"Many people wrote to Tesco in response to this news, pointing out that the sponsorship did not reflect the views, beliefs and outlook of the overwhelming number of families that choose to shop at Tesco."


Tesco is the largest private-sector employer in the United Kingdom.
