LGBT FORUM - Monday 1st May 2017, 6pm , St Helen's Sq

York against Homophobia in Chechnya, UK Government appeal to review LGBTQ Assylum/refugee policy. Holding hands with Pride. This is a static protest against recent events in Chechnya where Gay men are being held in concentration camps, tortured and killed. We are also appealing to our Government to urgently review their policy for LGBTQ Assylum seekers and refugees, and in solidarity with events in Holland, and with York Pride's theme for 2017, we are asking people to arrive holding hands with pride and to leave the same way at the end.

This is what the Green Party have been working on as their LGBTIQ manifesto.
