The inaugural report from the APPG on Global LGBT Rights is published

Friday, April 15, 2016 - 12:45

A new All Party Parliamentary Group for Global LGBT Rights has released it's inaugural report this week. The All Party Parliamentary group was established in June 2015 to provide a forum for parliamentarians and organisations across the public, private and third sectors to work together to champion LGBT rights and push back against abuse and discrimination. 

Ben Howlett, the Member of Parliament for Bath and Officer of the All Party Parliamentary Group, has welcomed the publication of the report ‘The UK’s stance on international breaches of LGBT rights’.

After the report’s launch event, Ben said, ‘It’s been great to be part of a cross party group investigating the important topic of the treatment of the LGBT community across the globe. Across the world lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people face ongoing, serious and concerning violations of their civil, political and economic rights. The UK is in a good position to help prevent such abuses, having itself legislated to ensure full equality for LGBT people.

This report brings together what needs to be done to support the improvement of the treatment of the international LGBT community, with suggested actions that can be taken by the Government, businesses and society as a whole. I look forward to continuing to push for the promotion of LGBT rights internationally.’
