The UKs first ever LGBT History Month magazine is being launched with the support of Angela Eagle
Budget airline EasyJet yesterday offered to fly Pope Benedict XVI to the UK following the recent controversy surrounding his viewpoints on British Equality laws and estimated cost of his visit.
The Sun has caused havoc after publishing a poll yesterday asking whether gay people should be allowed to be cabinet ministers.
The Government will not push through proposals that churches argue would restrict their ability to deny jobs to gay people and transsexuals, Equality Minister Harriet Harman has confirmed.
A senior minister has been criticised after claims that the taxpayer indirectly funded a gay sex party at the Conservative Party conference.
Oliver Heald, the solicitor-general who was head of the Parliamentary Resources Unit (PRU) at the time, has come under fire for his inquiry into the incident.
Mr Heald issued an informal warning to Iain Corby, a senior party official, who reportedly exchanged messages with another man on a gay dating website referring to “cute boys” and “orgy” at a hotel suite hired for Tory researchers.
Mr Corby quit as head of the PRU, which conducts research on behalf of Tory MPs, earlier this month.
The unit is paid for by MPs through their taxpayer-funded expenses.
Mr Heald, the member for North East Hertfordshire, started an investigation after party whips were shown a transcript of Mr Corby’s conversation on Grindr, the gay dating website.
He also examined allegations that Mr Corby was rude after returning to work under the influence of alcohol. Ipsa, the expenses watchdog, will this week investigate whether the hotel booking was a breach of the rules, which state that expenses cannot be used to cover the cost of “attendance at political party conferences or meetings”.
Mr Heald said yesterday that he was “unaware” that the expenditure might have amounted to a breach of the rules.
