STONEWALL LAUNCHES ELEC­TION MAN­I­FESTO

Diva (UK) - - News Round-Up -

LGBT char­ity Stonewall has launched a pow­er­ful elec­tion man­i­festo ahead of the gen­eral elec­tion. They are urg­ing the Bri­tish pub­lic to not only reg­is­ter to vote, but also to ask their can­di­dates to show a real com­mit­ment to LGBT equal­ity. Vi­tal steps Stonewall be­lieves the next gov­ern­ment must take in­clude chang­ing the law so that LGBT hate crimes are treated in the same way as race or faith crimes, in­tro­duc­ing Lgbt-in­clu­sive re­la­tion­ship and sex educ­tion in schools and im­prov­ing Gen­der Iden­tity Ser­vices to make them more use­ful and ac­ces­si­ble. They also say the Hu­man Rights Act must be re­tained even af­ter the UK leaves the EU and that the UK should re­spond quickly and de­ci­sively when­ever LGBT peo­ple face vi­o­lence abroad.
