"As a group, it's naïve to think that the LGBT community can be represented by one body. There is no real community, after all, since we're often only linked by our sexuality and, thereafter, the effect this has on our lives. Is there an answer to the one or two spokespeople we have putting words in our mouth, though? . . .

"Wouldn't it be better, therefore, to at least come closer to a level of democratic representation? No two human beings are the same, but that doesn't stop there being a Muslim Council of Britain, so what's to stop there being a Gay Council of Britain?"

--Stephen Price, in Pinknews.co.uk
