    We've waited long enough says Lib Dem equalities spokesperson Wera Hobhouse MP.

    Today she tweeted "LGBT+ people are being let down by this Government. Conversion therapy is abusive and harmful.

    It should have been banned many years ago.

    There can be no more delays.

    No more empty promises.

    Government must introduce a ban on conversion therapy *now*", following her remarks in Parliament:

    Today is the first day of Pride Month. While celebrating how far we've come, we need to keep making the case for the rights of all LGBT+ people. From homelesness to mental health to pay and trans rights, it's clear that we still have a lot of work to do to achieve justice and equality for all.

    As just one recent example of how our progress is fragile, on Monday Liz Truss set about undermining Stonewall, the UK's leading LGBT+ charity, by calling for Government Departments to withdraw from its Diversity Champions Scheme. That's not something an LGBT+ friendly government would do. It really highlights how hard we need to fight.

    In the middle of March the Government was besieged with criticism over its treatment of LGBT+ people. It got so bad that it lost three LGBT+ advisers. They cited the ignorance of ministers, and said that the government has created a "hostile environment" for LGBT+ people.

    The government's failings are clear to see: from a failure to deliver GRA reform, failure to ban conversion therapy, and cutting funding to tackle anti-LGBT+ bullying in schools.

    Human rights are under threat in our twinned towns in Poland: across the UK it's time to help

    We're asking local councils twinned with towns in Poland to start active diplomatic engagement to champion equality and human rights in the face of the "LGBT ideology free" zones Poland has created. Local communities in our twinned towns are now under threat, people are discriminated against, and human rights have been attacked.

  • Census 2021 - 21st March

    1. This census will collect information on the LGBT+ population for the first time.

    2021's census will be the first UK census to include both a question on sexual orientation, and one on gender identity, for people over 16 years of age. Given the importance of the census as a robust universal measure of demographics at a local level, whilst these questions are voluntary, we believe it is vital that everyone in the LGBT+ community who feels comfortable doing so stands up to be counted. The resourcing of services which meet the needs of our community will be partly determined by population data gathered in the census.

    1st February marks the beginning of LGBT+ History Month. Launched in 2005, LGBT+ History Month is a time when people come together to share and tell stories of the experiences, lives and achievements of LGBT+ people throughout society. Just like with Black History Month (October) or Disability History Month (which runs from November into December), it's typically filled with events (check ours out here) and discussion. LGBT+ History Month reminds us of the progress we've made, but also warns us about the injustices that we have only recently escaped - and injustices that are still with us.
