HELL NO to racist drag at Manchester Pride

Here are screen grabs from the latest video by Manchester drag/pop-parody act Queens Of Pop, whose previous hits include “Kerry’s On The Coke Again".
Their latest video is a parody of Will.I.Am’s “Bang Bang" performed as black & white minstrels, to the tune of the Charleston. Both perfromers appear in black face with enlarged jazz-hands, and the lyrics include jokes about black men having big willies, black men infecting others with AIDS and gay black men being rapists:

Queens of Pop will be performing on the main stage at this year’s gay Pride festival in Manchester.
Fuck that.

If, like me, you don’t want this disgusting racist nonsense given the stamp of approval by Manchester’s most popular (publicly funded) gay event, or performed live to a crowd of thousands as a representation of the best of Manchester’s gay culturer, email Manchester Pride directly here:
