Vampire Pride anyone?

The Lancashire Telegraph reports:

Darkness Vlad Tepes is spearheading a campaign to add a black stripe to the … rainbow flag, which will represent the gay goth community.

Mr Tepes, a goth, believes they should have equal rights to other strands of the gay community and said adding a black stripe to the rainbow flag would help change people’s perceptions of them in society.

He has previously spoken out asking for tolerance of his ‘vampire’ lifestyle. He regularly sleeps in a coffin and drinks animal blood.

Lancashire LGBT and the openly gay MP Nigel Evans have said the rainbow flag already reflects the ‘full diversity’ of LGBT people. Phew. That’s a relief.
