Complaints by activists started a two-month government investigation into whether or not Canterbury does enough to promote homosexual culture. The "sufficiently gay" seal of approval came after 60 days and a cost of thousands of pounds. The town council proved its gay friendliness by giving details of "touring plays and musicals, for example, which would be of interest to the LGBT community." Spokesman Rob Davies, said, "Obviously we're delighted with the outcome of the investigation. We feel we do a great deal for the gay community in Canterbury and we have always tried to support various gay events and promotions. But at the same time it is not the duty of any council to set up a gay bar — that's not what councils do."
