Back in Blighty, the race for London mayor is well underway it seems. But how times have changed. This weekend all the candidates participated in a forum organised by Stonewall, the LGBTQ advocacy group. Yes, they were all there it seems.
Now this is quite a huge step that all of the political parties have finally woken up to the fact that they need to be supportive of the LGBTQ community. In the past where one party or another has been vehemently against equality it has often resulted in an immediate dismissal by LGBTQ voters. Now that the issue seems to be moot I am sure that it is opening the political debate up in ways that it never has done before. Imagine what it would be like if this happened in th USA? Suddenly a whole lot more people would be interested in the different policies that the people running for office were pushing. I know that it might make me listen a little more as I indicated in a previous post.
You can see some photographs from the forum at today’s link.
Big love to you all!
