'however, the inequalities that persist are frustrating. It is ludicrous, for example, that there is still a blanket ban on gay men donating blood, irrespective of whether they practice safe sex or if they have tested negative for HIV. Plus, although civil partnerships have been a step forward, until same sex marriage is permitted it is impossible to claim gay and straight couples are treated equally. And in school playgrounds ‘gay’ is still used as a four letter word.'
So as the Euro Tories take a step back to those days by aligning themselves with European Homophobes. And Ben Bradshaw recently added that a deep vein of homophobia still reaches right through the Tory establishment to the front benches. I'm proud of our leader, our party, our Liberal Youth for their stance against homophobia wherever they find it.
