LONDON, United Kingdom (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – As she celebrated her 90th birthday, Queen Elizabeth had a message to Great Britain’s LGBT community: don’t travel to the U.S.A.

The gay-friendly queen mother was reportedly pissed at the growing anti-LGBT sentiment in America, particularly in two states which recently passed discriminatory legislation against those who pledge allegiance to the rainbow flag.

But it was not only the Royal Palace that cautioned lesbian, gay, bisexual and transagender citizens about travel to America.  The British Foreign Office also issued — for the first time — a travel advisory specifically addressed to the LGBT community. It warned travelers to be aware of controversial new laws in North Carolina and Mississippi before visiting the United States.

imageAlthough the advisory was directed at North Carolina and Mississippi, organizers of Pride celebrations across the U.S. — from  San Francisco to New York — are weary that there will be less attendance in their respective celeberations this June.

Moral of the story: you can piss off the Prime Minister, but you’d better not piss off the Queen!
