Stonewall to host London Gay Mayoral Hustings.

Stonewall is to host the London Gay Mayoral Hustings on 14 April, allowing the capital’s lesbian, gay and bisexual voters to ask candidates from the four main parties in London about their policies before the mayoral election on 3 May. The Hustings will be held at BFI Southbank from 11.00am to 12.30, and will be attended by Boris Johnson, Jenny Jones, Ken Livingstone and Brian Paddick.

Stonewall Chief Executive Ben Summerskill said: ‘When Stonewall hosted 2008’s London Gay Mayoral Hustings the election looked like a close-run affair.

This year’s election looks even closer, and the capital’s 350,000 gay voters could well hold the balance of votes on 3 May.

‘The mayoral candidates know they can’t afford to pay lip service to gay people’s concerns about crime and other issues. This is their chance to speak to gay voters, and for those voters to make their minds up about who will be the best person to lead London. It should be a lively event, and I’m delighted that all four of the main candidates will be there.’

The London Gay Mayoral Hustings are supported by g3 and Out In the City. To attend or for more information email h.kibirige@stonewall.org.uk or call 020 7593 1861.
