In a Birmingham MacDonalds, waiting for a train

It was the LGBT Consortium conference today and I was asked late on to do something there.

More later, but it was staggering how Michael Cashman MEP stood out compared to everyone else. In his fifteen minute speech, the b-word never once passed his lips (and he skipped lightly over the not so good bits of Labour's record on LGBT rights). He even managed to rename LGBT History Month, when asked a question about it, to 'Lesbian and Gay History Month'. Oh, and homophobia only affects lesbians and gay men, apparently.

The name of the organisation he's so proud of having helped found? Stonewall. You'd never guess…
