From the Daily Telegraph "The “celebratory” venue, which will feature drag performances and free **** literature, will open on Derby Day in early June – the first day of races.
While the Jockey Club hopes it will make the event more “inclusive”, others believe it is simply a PR stunt that will do little to open up the sport.
A large festival-style tent will be installed on the Hill, the area at the centre of the racecourse where spectators can watch the Derby for free.
It will include a bar and DJ, along with performances from the drag queens Cara Melle and Bonk.
Said to “blend entertainment and education”, it will also provide a library of **** literature to “encourage more people from the LGBTQIA+ community to feel empowered to attend and engage with horse racing”.
Will it frighten the horses like the fireworks last year?

Surely things/Events can only be - 'Inclusive' - if people WANT to be INCLUDED ...

Bar a few oddities, horse racing was one of the few sanctuaries from the woke madness infecting most walks of English life. But now it's finally worming its way in, and the boldness will continue. At York there was some climate change grifter employed by the course. There was Stephen Lawrence day. Luck on Sunday (without Luck) spent most of Sunday naval gazing about 'mental health'.

If Epsom are so keen to promote the idea that you can change sex on a whim, maybe some owner should insist that their colt identifies as a filly, and claim the 3 lb allowance.

It is a bit late to complain about non-racing attractions at the Derby. Funfairs, fireworks, whatever the demonstrators are demonstrating about. All human life is there.

And contrary to the Telegraph report in OP, Oaks Day comes before Derby Day and it is only a two-day "Festival".

But it's a gimmick and probably an unsuccessful one.

Some of the below posts really made me chuckle. I think all this is part of a desperate attempt to save the UK horse racing industry from eventual extinction and they will try virtually ANYTHING to do that. I thought when they talked about drag racing, we were to see trans people being towed behind horses at great speed!

Jimnast, I think one of the main problems is that the individuals in positions of control in JCR (and countless other organisations who promote this sort of drivel) are not intending to stay in the company/institution/organisation for any length of time. They parachute in on promotion from somewhere else, do their 3 years or so, then "move on" to face "new challenges" having "achieved all they can" to a completely separate job. They KNOW that the best way to impress prospective future employers is to have this sort of inane rubbish on their CV. I was a lawyer in Government service. Spent 30 years at it. Those who were Business Managers or HR "Directors" never stayed longer than 3-4 years tops and then would go onto the Foreign Office/Home Office on promotion , then a charity etc etc. They had no skin in our game as I did. Same with the JCR. They'll all be off in 2 years or so boasting to some gullible woke Managing Director that they had an LGBT+ tent at Epsom. Be enough to get them the job.

No need to panic. They're not making it compulsory! But I cannot see how it will help.

Suppose you are gay. If you are a gay racing fan, you may already be planning to watch the Derby. If you are not a racing fan, will you really be tempted by a gay-friendly tent in the middle of the day?

DonegalPrince is probably right. This will boost someone's cv and do damn all for racing or the gay community.

The Woke Racing promoters won't be happy until they totally destroy Racing to appease the Very Very small minority, against the very very big
Majority. I want to be in the stand for Proper punters, Men  in there 50/60/70/80s who have a few ££ and want to study form and have a bet,
THATS THE MAJORITY , EVEN IF THEY DON'T LIKE IT.

Does one tent really destroy racing's core audience? If so, racing is surely too fragile to survive. And it seems especially incongruous to complain about a tent at the Derby which for centuries has been accompanied by fairs.

Isn't attracting a new audience for racing a laudable aim? My fear, as expressed earlier, is that this is a damn stupid way of going about it. The irony is that both the tent people and their opponents on this thread seem to regard gays as freaks and not just ordinary people who either like or do not like racing and differ only in who makes the cocoa when they get home.

Having a tent full of gays and trannies wouldn't offend me in the slightest, they'll probably add a splash of colour to the place!

Absolutely nothing to do with a genuine attempt at attracting new people to racing.

Absolutely everything to do with people who live on twatter, using racing to show other types that live on twatter how brilliantly woke they are.

Regular life is now littered with this stuff, where these people are happy to lose audience, customers etc. As long as they are impressing their mates, all good.
