Scottish Parliament: Cabinet (Meetings) (22 Sep 2016) not offended by some of that terminology. Let us all unite in condemning homophobia. We were just talking about mental health, and some of the reasons for mental health problems among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people relate to homophobia and homophobic bullying. Let us bring a bit of seriousness to the issue. I take responsibility; such comments are targeted at me and...

Scottish Parliament: NHS Staffing (21 Sep 2016)

Brian Whittle: ...that is accessible to all, health inequality cannot be overcome and therefore the attainment gap cannot be closed. Lack of understanding regarding the choices available, lack of finance, disability and being a member of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex community are among the many issues that are cited as barriers to participation in an active lifestyle. The Parliament...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Public Petition: End the Veto on Marriage Equality (20 Sep 2016)

Gerry Carroll: I am absolutely proud to present this petition to the Assembly on behalf of the 20,000 people who signed The Gay Say's online petition. The petition was a response to the DUP's move to veto marriage equality in November 2015, which was deeply upsetting for the thousands of people here whose rights are being denied. The signatures represent the feeling of the vast majority of people across...

Written Answers — Women and Equalities: LGBT People (15 Sep 2016)

Caroline Dinenage: ..., the Government responded to the Women and Equalities Select Committee inquiry on transgender equality. In this, we committed to publishing an update on progress against “Working for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality: Moving Forward (2011)”; and “Advancing transgender equality: a plan for action (2011)”. The Government will publish both of these...

Scottish Parliament: Domestic Abuse Law (15 Sep 2016)

Annie Wells: ...for possible complications, which I will talk about later. As Douglas Ross pointed out in his speech, we need to be inclusive of all victims of domestic abuse, and that includes victims from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community as well as male victims. It is estimated that as many as one in four LGBT people in Scotland may experience domestic abuse, and I specifically want...

The BBC and Political Impartiality — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (14 Sep 2016)

David Davies: ...of hearing the BBC use the word “conservative” to describe radical Islamic clerics in Iran and Iraq. Anyone googling it will see what I mean. These extremist people who have absolutely ridiculous views about gays and women, believing them all to be second-class citizens, are quite often described as conservative, albeit with a small c, but that does not come over on the radio....

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Football: Homelessness (14 Sep 2016)

Tracey Crouch: ...Cup is an excellent example of how sport can transform the lives of homeless people all over the country, and we particularly championed the role of Pride House in creating spaces for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people to engage with and celebrate the event. As outlined in our Sport Strategy, the Government recognises the power of engaging in sport and wants to...

Scottish Parliament: Homophobic Bullying (Schools) (13 Sep 2016)

Jamie Greene: ...that some schools are training teachers while others are not. Given that the majority of teachers who were polled in the survey feel that they have not been adequately trained to tackle lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues in school, what specific plans does the Government have to address that teacher training issue?

Scottish Parliament: Stand Up to Bullying Campaign (6 Sep 2016)

Fulton MacGregor: ...positions to educate people on the dangers of bullying, rather than sending out the message that it is something to make jokes about in order to get a few laughs or retweets. Stonewall Scotland—Scotland’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality charity—has made some incredible inroads into the bullying of, and discrimination against, LGBT people in Scotland....

Health: HIV - Question for Short Debate (5 Sep 2016)

Lord Patel: ...of preexposure prophylaxis, PrEP, for HIV”, as many other noble Lords have mentioned. I come back to why PrEP is so important. Others have mentioned the evidence that is now public in two studies, one conducted by PROUD and the other by Ipergay. They both found that PrEP was 86% effective, as has already been mentioned—that is, it stopped 17 out of every 20 HIV infections. They...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Gender Recognition (1 Aug 2016)

Lord Nash: ...the Government responded to the Women and Equalities Select Committee inquiry on transgender equality. In this, we committed to publishing an update on progress against “Working for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality: Moving Forward (2011)”; and “Advancing transgender equality: a plan for action (2011)”. The Government also committed to producing a...

Palestine: Children - Motion to Take Note (21 Jul 2016)

Lord Oates: ...ideology and its vile application by the apartheid regime would ever make that comparison with the democratic state of Israel. Indeed, I note Israel is the only state in the region in which I, as a gay man, could live freely and under the protection of law. I have a great respect for the values of Israel. Nevertheless, while there is no comparison between the Government of Israel and that...

Online Child Abuse (20 Jul 2016)

Sarah Champion: ...of their gender or transgender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, nationality or religion. To highlight the impact of bullying, I will focus on one aspect of it: the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Recently, Stonewall released truly shocking figures: nine in 10 young people have heard homophobic remarks at school; six in 10 young people have...

Electoral Reform (Proportional Representation and Reduction of Voting Age) (20 Jul 2016)

Caroline Lucas: ...that better reflects modern Britain. Only 29% of MPs are women and although that is more than ever before, it still not right when women make up just over half the country’s adult population. People of colour, disabled people, carers, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender—LGBT—people are still under-represented in Parliament. I think that would change under PR,...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (19 Jul 2016)

Lord Paddick: ...the security of their databases. This makes highly intrusive personal data potentially available to criminals and hostile foreign powers. If a criminal establishes that a married man is accessing gay websites, or a hostile foreign Government establish that an intelligence officer is accessing lonely hearts websites, that could increase the risk of blackmail or entrapment. Knowing from ICRs...

Turkey (19 Jul 2016)

David Davies: promoting Britain’s interests abroad, which is his job. I ask the Government to reiterate again that our commitment to democracy in Turkey is tied in with our commitment to women’s rights, gay rights and the rights of Turkey’s other political and religious minorities, who may well be feeling threatened at the moment.

Backbench Business: Channel 4 (19 Jul 2016)

Graham Jones: ...any other public service broadcaster. It is the only public service broadcaster whose overall viewership is getting younger, and its transformative impact on social attitudes, by presenting the viewpoints of BAME and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, as well as people with disabilities, has been remarkable.

Co-Operatives: Maternity Discrimination (14 Jul 2016)

Gareth Thomas: ...hope the Government will lead a high-profile, ongoing campaign to change attitudes in the workplace. Government-led campaigns down the years have led to significant change. One thinks of the difference we see now with gay relationships— the work of Governments of various parties has led that change. One thinks, too, of action down the years on drink-driving and to promote the use of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jul 2016)

David Cameron: ...was a case that this Government raised again and again with the US Government, and we are pleased that it has been resolved. I thank him also for what he said about equal marriage. There are 30,000 gay people in our country who, in the past six years, have been able to get married. That is real progress. I will never forget the day at No. 10 when one of the people who works very close to...

Iraq Inquiry - Motion to Take Note (12 Jul 2016)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...the Iraqi Government in building an inclusive state? For me, human rights are fundamental, and an attack on human rights is a justification for intervention. We are seeing attacks on not only the rights of women and children but on religious freedom and on other minorities. I am incredibly proud to be a supporter of the Iraqi lesbian and gay movement, which is in a very fragile position...
