‘Gay-Cure Therapy’ Ads Banned From London Buses - Mirror Online
Adverts which suggested gay people could be cured have been banned from London buses, transport chiefs said tonight.
The campaign was due to run for two weeks on the side of vehicles serving five routes in the capital, including top tourist destinations such as St Paul’s Cathedral, Oxford Street, Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus.
The posters, by Christian group Core Issues Trust, stated: “Not gay! Post-gay, ex-gay and proud. Get over it!” and were believed to mock pro-gay group Stonewall’s recent campaign which featured adverts saying: “Some people are gay. Get over it.”
But following a huge public outcry which labelled the Core Issues’ campaign homophobic, London Mayor Boris Johnson, who chairs Transport for London (TfL), tonight ordered the adverts to be pulled.
