A new campaign is aiming to help bring an end to homophobia and discrimination in pubs, clubs and venues.


Ask For Clive is an inclusivity campaign launched in St Albans by community activist Danny Clare.

Danny printed and distributed Ask For Clive stickers to over 20 pubs in the locality and the campaign has taken off from there.


The scheme is named after prominent LGBT rights campaigner Clive Duffey, a counsellor at the Terrence Higgins Trust charity.

The Ask For Clive stickers read: “Everyone is welcome here.


“This venue will not tolerate any form of discrimination. Should you see or encounter any form of abuse, please ask for Clive at the bar and we will resolve the issue.”

Danny launched the campaign after hearing about numerous hate crime incidents. 


Two high-profile incidents occurred only last weekend.

In one, a female couple were beaten up by a group of teenagers after refusing to kiss one another on a London bus. In the other, two female actors appearing in the gay-issues play Rotterdam were attacked for kissing in the street.
