On 2 May 2012 you performed a U-turn on your pledge, made at the Stonewall London Gay Mayoral Hustings on 14 April 2012 and reaffirmed on 29 April, to deliver a London Gay Manifesto. Your office claimed you instead wanted to 'unite the many diverse groups that comprise London'. Since then what work have you done to achieve this goal?  And how would it have been hindered by the existence of your promised London Gay Manifesto?

Answer for London Gay Manifesto

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My equality framework 'Equal Life Chances for All' is currently being revised, and outlines my approach to mainstreaming equality. My approach unites Londoners rather than segregating communities based on their identities, as has been done in the past. Please see my response to MQ 2863/2013 regarding direct engagement with London's LGBT communities.
