Prime Minister Theresa May will today (Wednesday 19 July) be hosting a reception to celebrate the LGBT community at No.10 Downing Street - the first since this year’s General Election and the Conservative’s crucial support from the ‘anti-gay’ DUP.
The Downing Street LGBT reception, which was first held in 2009 by then Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown, will be attended by leading figures from the LGBT community, with Midlands Zone also being represented at the event.
The Prime Minister is expected to make a speech at the reception to demonstrate her continued commitment to the LGBT community despite the 'anti-gay' DUP, who are propping up the Government with a confidence and supply agreement.
Our Editor-in-Chief, Martin Monahan, who has attended a number of No.10 Downing St receptions with both ex Prime Ministers Gordon Brown and David Cameron, will be representing Midlands Zone.
Other LGBT guests from the Midlands include Lawrence Barton representing Birmingham Pride.
