Mr John Taylor

Former Conservative MP for Solihull

Gay Rights

A vote for gay rights would be a vote for homosexual people to have the same rights as heterosexuals (including for example the ability to marry, an equal age of consent, and the right to adopt) and for discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation to be illegal.
