Brighton's Chief Superintendent has joined the line-up for the start
of this year's Equality Walk. The Walk, which takes place on Sunday
May 2 - in the middle of the Bank Holiday - supports Stonewall's
Education for All programme which tackles anti-gay bullying in our
schools.

Chief Superintendent Graham Bartlett will join the Deputy Mayor of
Brighton & Hove, Councillor Garry Peltzer Dunn at the start of the
Walk. They'll be alongside Guinevere Turner - American actress and
screenwriter of 'Go Fish' and the 'L Word' - and Rikki Beadle-Blair,
director of FIT Stonewall's anti-bullying film for schools.

The
Brighton Equality Walk is supported by American Express and Pepe
Vazquez-Mendez, Head of their UK Operations will also attend the
Walk's opening.

Registration for the Walk is £10 and there is a prize for the top
fundraiser; a weekend break for two in Paris, travelling business
class by Eurostar, a two night stay in a four star hotel and £500
spending money.

This year the Brighton Equality Walk is in aid of Stonewall's work
with Primary Schools. Stonewall's developing a series of resources to
help primary school teachers understand and celebrate different
families - including posters for schools, a training DVD for primary
school teachers and information about stories that reflect modern lives.

Michaela Greene, Stonewall's Deputy Director of Fundraising said
'Teachers can struggle to acknowledge that different families exist -
and this has an impact on children and young people. By working with
Primary Schools we can reduce this impact and make school a safe and
inclusive environment for all children.'

On May 6 lesbian, gay and bisexual voters will head to the polls to
determine the next government. To help them make their decision
Stonewall's compiled the voting records of all current MPs based on
seven key votes during the current Parliament. David Lepper and Celia
Barlow, MPs for Brighton Pavilion and Hove respectively were two of
116 MPs with a voting record of 100% voting for gay equality. Des
Turner MP for Brighton Kemptown has a voting record of 93% voting for
gay equality.
