London Pink Eye
No, but London’s Eye was lit up pink last night. Well, that’s what I heard from G (of the G&M partnership that gets legalised in spring next year) via a text message last night. What a lovely gesture, I thought. They’re celebrating the fact that the first Civil Partnerships in England and Wales will be registered today. But in doing a google on ‘pink London eye’ this morning, I came across this site. Oh dear, it’s just a cynical marketing exercise as the Eye will be available for ‘gay weddings’. But that same search threw up evidence of a previous pink eye when it was lit up pink in support of the Breakthrough breast cancer charity. Ok, maybe I’m overly cynical.
Well, whether it was an advertising gimmick or a celebratory gesture, it must have looked very pretty in pink.
