LGBT+ History Month

The Liberal Democrats have a proud history of standing up for the rights of the LGBT+ community.

A timeline of events

  • In the 1970’s, we began to campaign for equal treatment
  • In 1991 we began to campaign for an equal age of consent
  • In 2003, Lib Dem Leader Ed Davey successfully repealed section 28
  • In 2010-15 coalition, the Liberal Democrats passed the Equal Marriage Act

With our fantastic record on LGBT+ rights in mind, it was therefore a pleasure to invite Adrian Hyyrylainen-Trett, an Adviser to the Liberal Democrats on equality issues, to Essex to hear him speak about Trans rights and mental health.
