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.
Students have protested against a "discriminatory" ban which prevents gay men from donating blood.
Protesters highlighted the issue while attending the Pride march in Glasgow.
NUS Scotland's Stiofan McFadden said there was a blanket ban on donations from gay and bisexual men.
He said: "NUS Scotland believes this ban is based on discrimination rather than scientific fact.
"The majority of blood boards around the world have moved to a case-by-case deferral system rather than a blanket ban.
"Given the constant shortage of blood in the UK, it is difficult for fit and healthy gay and bisexual men to stand back and not play their part purely because of their sexuality."
The NUS's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender officer added that the ban "is one of the last great inequalities facing the LGBT community in the UK today".
Students gathered signatures for a petition calling on the UK Government to overturn the ban.
It will be presented to the Department of Health's Advisory Committee on the Safety of Blood, Tissues and Organs.
