Pride to be Liberal

10 08 2010

Last Saturday I joined the rest of my local party, to march in support of Brighton Pride.  We were joined by Simon Hughes, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats, who I thought was fantastic company and a welcome upbeat addition to the march.  We were also supported by Dr Evan Harris, President of DELGA, and former MP for Oxford West and Abingdon.

It was a lovely sunny day and I felt proud to be marching in support of LBGT rights.  I might not be that way inclined, but I am a strong believer in equality before the law, and before the treatment of society, irrespective of gender or sexual preference.  So yes, I felt proud and marched (and danced) with a smile on my face.  Fundamentally, the Liberal Democrats, as well as being the first party to support the LBGT agenda, are, in my clearly biased mind, the correct party to lead Brighton forward, believing as they do in civil liberties, equality & community.
