Lib Dem MP nominated for gay award
DELGA are delighted to hear that Bristol West MP Stephen Williams has been shortlisted for this year's Gay & Lesbian Awards. In June 2006, Williams launched a campaign against homophobic bullying, after organising the Education and Skills Select Committee's first ever enquiry into the issue of bullying in schools, and the nomination reflects that contribution to furthering the cause of lesbian and gay equality.
The organisers say the awards are "aimed at celebrating the key achievements and successes of notable individuals from the gay & lesbian community in the UK and recognising their contribution to our society as a whole. Its objectives in 2007 are: identify and honour individuals in the community of whom we can be truly proud."
The Award Ceremony will be held on September 21st, the day after Lib Dem federal conference ends.
