In a video promoting the event, Keen said Brighton was “awash with … nasty, pernicious, woman-hating Pride flags everywhere,” according to The Argus. “If we call Brighton the capital of lesbian and gay people in the U.K., they have to be the victims of this absolutely vile gay conversion therapy known as transgenderism,” she said.

Keen told the Daily Mail, “It’s a very effective campaign that we are supposed to believe that men that want to call themselves women are the most vulnerable group in society” “When I was a bit younger, I could walk to Tesco with my children, and some man would tell me what they thought of my appearance. We as women sadly have become used to these regular infringements. I think the whole identity politics issue is a poison,” she said. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
