A fair deal for LGBT people

 Also on the subject of summits:

Today it has also been announced that this summer the UK government will host the UK’s first ever LGBT conference, taking aim at the prejudices LGBT people still face, and looking at the collective action we can take to tackle those injustices alongside our international friends and partners. 

  • Everyone should be able to live their life free from prejudice, malice, or violence, regardless of their background or who they choose to love – and the UK is leading the way in tackling this.
     
  • That is why this summer Britain is inviting countries from around the world to attend the UK’s first ever global LGBT conference – ‘Safe To Be Me’ – the largest event of its kind which will focus on advancing equality and legal protections, tackling violence and discrimination, and ensuring equal access to public services for LGBT people.
     
  • By working with our international friends and partners, we are taking another step forwards in making sure LGBT people around the world can live free from the discrimination and violence that persists today.
