Steve Gilbert is a keen supporter of LGBT Lib Dems and LGBT issues.

Today, 1st December, is World AIDS Day. Openly gay Liberal Democrat MP for St Austell & Newquay, Steve Gilbert, has sent the following message to mark the occasion.

"Today is a really important day to raise awareness, raise money of HIV/AIDS and to show our support for those with the illness.

"Despite recent medical advances, HIV/AIDS remains a life-limiting illness and we still have a huge way to go to tackle it.

"I urge everyone to join me today in support of the work of charities such as the Terrance Higgins Trust and RED to help those at home and across the world."

There are vigils and events around the UK to commemorate the day. LGBT Lib Dems will be present at events in Manchester, London and elsewhere.
