British Muslims are leading the first ever pride march in Birmingham today, in what is a first in the event’s 22-year-history. Members of Birmingham’s Muslim community will walk alongside Andrew Moffat, the primary school teacher at the centre of a row over LGBT-inclusive relationship education. The show of solidarity comes after anti-LGBT education protestors have staged a number of protests outside Parkfield Community and Anderton Park primary schools in Birmingham earlier this year. Parents had expressed outrage at the teaching of LGBT equality as part of the national Equality Act. Several parents have launched a campaign against the educational materials, claiming it is an affront to their religious beliefs, specifically targeting the ‘No Outsiders’ programme and its creator Andrew Moffat.
