The Modesto CA city council blocked plans for a Straight Pride event because organisers did not produce proof of insurance.

In a statement the council said, “The city has been informed that the certificate of liability insurance for the proposed event has been voided,”

“Liability insurance is a requirement for renting many city facilities.”

The block has been welcomed by those opposed to the event who said it encouraged hostility toward the LGBTIQ community and had connections to white supremacist organisations.

The Straight Pride event had been organised for 24 August.
