This is great that people working for Gay equality are being recognised by the crusty establishment. Strong signs of moving forward. Sir Ian McKellen was knighted in 1991 for services to drama, not the work he was doing for GLBT, although in 2008 he was given a Companion of Honour for services to drama (and equality).
Never heard of her but congratulations.
Cashman deserves his CBE, for working above and beyond the call of the charity he set up, and fighting for equality for twenty years, but does Grant really deserve one too, when her legacy as Deputy Chair was to let down not only the trans community with Bindel, Leckie, Fit, etc…, but the LGB community by not committing to equal marriage before a Tory-Lib Dem government did?
well done to this lady
A worthier recipient than the chairman of Northern Rock and all those other bankers who helped bring this country to bankruptcy.
