It’s always good to see people rewarded for their service to the LGBTQ community. Today it was announced that Michael Cashman, a Member of the European Parliament and former actor, is to be awarded an MBE (Member of the British Empire award) in the Queens New Years List). Cashman has been a tireless campaigner for LGBTQ rights for many years and it is good to see him being recognized for his works.
As more and more people are recognized at these levels it can only be good for our visibility and acceptance. Recognition is important to being accepted into society and to being placed onto an equal footing with everyone else. Long may this sort of thing continue!
