Scottish Parliament: Keeping Children Safe Online (11 May 2017)

Jamie Greene: ...a date of birth, which to me is not a safeguard—and some have no safeguards at all. It is all too easy to hide behind the anonymity of an internet profile. Unfortunately, there have been a handful of tragic cases where things have gone horribly wrong. When I lived in London, the gay community was rocked by the needless deaths of four young men who met their tragic fate at the hands...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Chechnya: LGBT People (27 Apr 2017)

Lord Cashman: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, following reports of the arrest, detention, torture and alleged murder of gay men in Chechnya, whether they will undertake discussion in the EU Council of Ministers and with the EU High Representative to explore what action can be taken to resolve that situation, including the release of those detained; whether they will call for an independent...

Chechnya: LGBT Citizens - Question (26 Apr 2017)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: My Lords, the Government are extremely concerned by reports of the detention and ill treatment of more than 100 gay men in Chechnya.

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill (24 Apr 2017)

Sammy Wilson: Irish language Act are the big impasse in the talks. We heart parroted again today—surprisingly, I even saw the Under-Secretary of State nodding his head—ideas about people being denied their rights on gay marriage and denied certain abortion rights. I simply say to the Minister that the whole point of devolution is that people in the regions of the United Kingdom have the...

Persecution and Detention of LGBT Citizens: Chechnya (20 Apr 2017)

Stephen Doughty: ...for granting this urgent question this morning, Mr Speaker. I praise the Minister for his sincerity on this issue, which he takes very seriously, and for his comments. This is truly a shocking anti-gay campaign, involving over 100, and possibly several hundred, men. I praise the non-governmental organisations and journalists in Russia, the UK and elsewhere who have brought this issue to...

Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Apr 2017)

Nigel Evans: ..., so let us try another question. His views will be examined over the next seven weeks. He was asked one question to which he refused to give an answer, so will he do so today: does he think being gay is a sin?

Scottish Parliament: Time for Inclusive Education Campaign (19 Apr 2017)

Monica Lennon: ...that one of my colleagues was starting to fidget and shuffle in her seat. After much squirming, she explained that she had something to tell us. It seemed to take for ever, then out it came: “I’m gay.” All that I could do was throw out my arms and hug her. She had made us fear the worst, but she was not sick or dying; she was taking the terrifying but courageous step of...

Merchant Shipping (Homosexual Conduct) Bill - Second Reading (6 Apr 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: ...provision penalising homosexuality. Although the statute book will now be clear, as the noble Lord said, its application across the United Kingdom is not yet complete. We have to remember that gay men and women cannot marry in Northern Ireland. It has been a long journey from Wolfenden, at a time when gay men were criminalised, second-class, often outcast citizens, to the complete removal...

Children and Social Work Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments (4 Apr 2017)

Lord Paddick: ...are being taught in all schools, but in many schools, in accordance with faith traditions, pupils are told that such relationships are wrong or sinful. Research conducted in 2012 showed that 55% of lesbian, gay and bisexual youth had experienced homophobic bullying in school and 41% of those bullied attempted, or thought about, taking their own lives. Separate research in 2014 showed that...

Balfour Declaration - Question (3 Apr 2017)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: ...on a daily basis, but it is not Syria that is a permanent item on the council’s agenda. Since 2007, it has been only Israel—the one country in the Middle East that protects human rights for women and gays, among others. Therefore, I welcome the Minister’s statement that, if things do not change in the future, Her Majesty’s Government will adopt a policy of voting...

HIV Treatment — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Mar 2017)

Peter Kyle: ...and people living with HIV. That places an additional onus on me to give voice to both the sector and the individuals who live with this long-term condition. I am a representative for that city and for the gay community. When I was on the board of Pride, I spent a lot of time trying to understand the fabric of the support services going to people living with HIV, and I have done so with...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (28 Mar 2017) Dollar. Extremely intelligent, she represented Scotland in debating and was an advocate for justice in political affairs. Her mother, Jude, a parishioner and friend, advocated for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and especially for improving mental health care, and she came here often to work for that end. Jude, too, took her life last September. Those losses are...

Merchant Shipping (Homosexual Conduct) Bill: Homosexual acts in the merchant navy: repeals (24 Mar 2017)

Philip Davies: ...from the statute book is unjustifiable. As I said on Second Reading, this Bill is about dealing with things that should never have been illegal in the first place. When we talk about things such as gay rights the tone can sometimes be as though we are doing people a favour, but it is nothing to do with that, as these things should never have been illegal in the first place; it is about...

UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Mar 2017)

Dawn Butler: ...dragged by his beard. A 40-year-old Polish national was killed because he was allegedly heard speaking Polish. A 31-year-old pregnant woman was kicked in her stomach and lost her baby. On Valentine’s day, a gay couple were attacked by five men for falling asleep on each other. I could go on.

Scottish Parliament: Loneliness (21 Mar 2017)

Kenneth Gibson: ...mostly too old to access youth services and too young for initiatives that engage with the elderly population. Isolation by smartphone and the internet is a growing problem. Young disabled people as well as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender teens and those from ethnic minority backgrounds are more likely to experience social isolation. Chronic and persistent bullying has been known to...

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Philip Davies: ...and the drive for diversity. Surely we should just be interested in recruiting the best people. It should be irrelevant whether they are men or women, black or white, Christian or Muslim, gay or straight. Who cares about any of those things? We want the best person for the job, irrespective of their gender or race. Surely that is what equality means in this day and age—not just...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Suicide (20 Mar 2017)

Nicola Blackwood: .... Public Health England raises awareness of suicide prevention and provides guidance to local authorities and the National Health Service on various topics, for example mental health in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community.
