  1. How does Helen Mirren telling a drumming group to shut up change my the lives of gay people? How about the courts decisions against the bigot Edwin Poots, Northern Ireland’s Health Minister. They really will affect gay people’s lives.

    I think Tory MP and openly gay Nick Herbert’s stunning rebuttal to Sir Gerald Howarth in third reading was astounding regarding his aggressive gay rant. One of the best if not the most memorable gob-smacking responses throughout the entire debate. A pity someone of his caliber couldn’t have responded the same way to Baroness Knight or Lord Dear.

    1. Where can one find a transcription of their exchange?

    What surprised me the most was some of the old Thatcher tory old guard coming out in support.

      Especially some in the Lords! Some of them Thatcher diehards!

  4. Changed LGBT life? Seriously, talk about hyperbole. The majority of these are barely interesting let alone life changing.

  5. Slightly off-topic, but where else to post this?

    A note to PN about web page formatting:

    You have a new style for multi-page stories like this one. For some reason each page has a ‘click here for next page’ link and a ‘next page’ link. Strange. However, what’s really strange is what happens when you click on ‘Comments’: if you click Comments from page 1, you get the comments (as expected), however if you click on Comments from subsequent pages you get to an old story about Gillette’s Facebook page. Well, that’s what happens for me; your results may vary.

    1. That is what happened to me, very strange…….

    2. I too have come across some puzzling anomalies.
      Why not re-instate the site feedback link that was available after the site was re-designed?

  6. I don’t see how a lot of this stuff makes on impact on anybody, let alone ‘change’ anything. After reading the comments on here am glad its just not me!!!

  7. Without question, as far as I can see, THE most important thing to affect the lives of LGBT people is the appalling situation now facing those in Uganda and those who are now required, by law, to ‘inform’ on them. Surely this is a highly significant addition to the other dangers faced by so-called ‘non-traditional’ sexualities in other parts of the world, surely reminiscent of the persecutions and death brought by Nazism.

    1. ps I know we’re talking about the UK, but now more than ever before, we here know much more about what’s going on. After all, we are in the same Commonwealth.
