British Government to Publish Action Plan to Improve LGBT Lives

06/26/2018 | The Irish Times

The British government will next week publish an action plan on advancing the lives and rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in the UK. It comes after the largest survey anywhere in the world of their experiences was carried out. British prime minister Theresa May told cabinet that the findings of the survey, in which more than 108,000 LGBT people participated, showed that there was “more to do” to ensure the UK is a country where “no-one feels the need to hide who they are”. The survey was presented to cabinet as campaigners called on Ms May to compensate up to 20,000 gay men who were convicted over sexual behaviour which is no longer a crime.
