Families and friends met for a wonderful evening at the House of Lords in June. A reception and dinner was held to celebrate the passing of equalities legislation and the work of FFLAG over the years. The evening was kindly hosted by Lord Norton of Louth and attended by over 100 guests. FFLAG patrons Lord Cashman of Limehouse and Peter Tatchell joined us and spoke about FFLAG’s contribution to the LGBT community. Lord Norton enlighted us on much of the equalities legislation and the work that has gone on over the years to ensure LGBT rights.
It was lovely to see FFLAG parents from Scotland, Wales, the Midlands and the West Country join with friends and families and share stories of FFLAG’s work and that of the parents support groups. There were also many guests supporting FFLAG for the first time. It was good to be able to talk about our work and to have such encouraging feedback.
We would like to thank Lord Norton most sincerely for hosting such a memorable evening and to thank Ken Batty for his amazing organisational skill and making it all happen.
