Nicola Sturgeon vows to use SNP influence in hung parliament to champion ‘world-leading’ LGBT reforms

The Scottish National Party (SNP) is pledging to lead the world in LGBT+ rights reforms as it releases its LGBTI Equality manifesto. The SNP is the only major party to release a specific LGBT+ manifesto ahead of the election on Thursday, although most other parties have included extensive LGBT+ pledges in their general manifestos. SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon said the party would use its influence in a hung parliament to lock Boris Johnson out of No 10 and secure reforms from the UK government to boost equality and human rights. “At this crucial election, a vote for the SNP is a vote to champion LGBTI equality, escape Brexit, and put Scotland’s future in Scotland’s hands – not Boris Johnson’s,” she said.
