A ‘gay pride’ poppy decorated with LGBT rainbow colours has divided opinion after being shared by Doncaster Pride on Remembrance Sunday. The organisation shared the image – with part of the poppy’s traditional red petals replaced by the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community’s rainbow colours as the nation fell silent yesterday to remember the 100th anniversary of the Armistice in 1918 which ended the First World War. The image, which was later deleted from the Doncaster Pride Instagram account, was shared on Doncaster Facebook group Doncaster News Party where it met with a mixture of criticism and support.
