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.
In response to The Supreme Court ruling that two gay men from Iran and Cameroon have the right to asylum in the UK, Stonewall Chief Executive Ben Summerskill said:
‘Stonewall welcomes this important ruling. Demanding that lesbian or gay people return home to conceal their sexuality bears no resemblance to the reality of gay life in many countries. We’re delighted that the Government is responding to what we asked of all the political parties in the run-up to the election. Our report No Going Back shows that UK Border Agency staff urgently need better guidance and support to deal with cases involving gay asylum seekers.
We look forward to working with UKBA and ministers on these issues.’
