A recent survey has been taken to find the council that works its best when facing gay issues and a local London Council Elmbridge was one to come in the top end of the poll.

In an initiative set up by Gay Surrey to find the most gay friendly councils

Gay Surrey set up a poll in a bid to find the most gay friendly councils in the area and local London Council Elmbridge has been praised for its work on gay issues and came in second in the poll, with many expecting them to reach number one by next year.

Surrey, the home county to the charity, didn’t fair so well in the poll set up in its mission for equality with only 8% of the vote.

According to This Is Local London, Gay Surrey chairman Gino Meriano said about the outcome: “The unsurprising result was Elmbridge Council, but I fully expect them to eventually be number one.

They are so unbelievably open to equality and diversity.

“Elmbridge Council embraces every single aspect they could embrace and comes up with real tangible solutions to LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender] issues.

“Things also don’t seem to take time with Elmbridge Council. They move fast once they have identified an issue and they are unbelievably proactive.

“They don’t look at the LGBT community as a minority group, but as a section of society that has certain issues that need to be resolved.”

The results will be published on Gay Surrey in full on the International Day Against Homophobia.
