Tatchell says he has been meeting frequently with the London Olympic organizers to seek an extensive gay and transgender role in the games, and described the results thus far as "a huge disappointment." "The only things that have happened have been the pin badges and the recruitment of LGBT volunteers," he said. (AP Photo/Sergey Ponomarev)
