London’s annual Pride event is a fantastic way to ensure that LGBTQ rights are kept firmly on the agenda and I want to see greater protections of LGBTQ rights everywhere.

I would expect sponsors of Pride to be championing LGBTQ rights in their businesses both here and globally. It is for Pride to decide best to ensure that.
