Gender Recognition ( 6 Dec 2023)

Anneliese Dodds: ...that failure in person—no conversion practices ban, no commitment to making every strand of hate crime an aggravated offence in order to tackle the staggering rise in violent hate crime targeting LGBT+ people, and no provision to schools of the guidance that has been promised repeatedly but not delivered.

Conversion Practices — [Yvonne Fovargue in the Chair] ( 6 Dec 2023)

Stuart Andrew: ...that we heard, in particular those of Sienna and Ben. So-called conversion therapy practices are dangerous and pseudo-scientific.

I want to lay out my...

Stuart Andrew: ...a year later that I had the courage to stand up and say that it was because of my sexuality. In 1988, when section 28 was introduced, only 11% of the public approved of same-sex relationships. Anti-LGBT sentiment was rife across society, schools and the workplace.
