A gay anti-pope march took place yesterday in aim to protest against the visit of His Holiness, after the homophobic comments he made regarding recent law changes surrounding gay couples.
The LGBT community is asking for a secular Europe after the Pope made derogatory comments about same-sex marriage. Many met outside the Westminster Cathedral and began a march to the Italian Embassy in a protest against the Pope’s visit to the UK, which would cost taxpayers £20 Million.
Hundreds attended the march and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence dressed as nurses and human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell also headed up the march.


Pope Benedict recently caused controversy after he sent a letter to the Bishops of England and Wales were he spoke about the new British equal opportunity laws. He was believed to be referring to the law which stops all adoption agencies from discriminating gay couples, which came into action in January 2009, he said it “violates the natural law upon which the equality of all human beings is grounded.”
Pope Benedict confirmed that he plans to visit Britain, a first visit of its kind in 28 years. However the visit from His Holiness comes at a price. It was estimated that the visit would cost British taxpayers roughly £20 Million.
