Nick Clegg speaks out for LGBT equality

This month's Gay Times features an interview with Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg. In the interview, Nick discusses the Liberal Democrats' unparalleled record on LGBT equality. He talks about asylum seekers fleeing persecution over their sexuality, and the balance to be struck between free speech and preventing incitement to hatred. He says that his priorities for the gay community include making sure all schools have a homophobic bullying policy in place, reviewing the blood donation ban on gay and bisexual men, and equality of marriage for same-gender couples.

The issue also features the controversial interview with David Cameron, who has been criticised for his MEPs' failure to criticise Lithuania's Section 28 law, and for his party's voting record on LGBT equality.
