Theresa May's LGBT voting record criticised at equalities hustings event
- Theresa May’s voting record on the introduction of past equality legislation has been called into question at a hustings event for LGBT voters.
Speaking during a debate - hosted by Stonewall, Pink News and Pride in London - Lord Brian Paddick urged the audience to look at the Prime Minister’s historic record on LGBT issues.
Despite Ms May voting for the introduction of same-sex marriage four years’ ago, she has been criticised previously for voting against repealing section 28 in 2000 – a piece of legislation introduced in 1988 that banned the promotion of homosexuality in British schools.
