Prime Minister hosts LGBT reception

downingstreetFollowing a garden reception that he hosted last summer – shortly after becoming Prime Minister – David Cameron is to host another event at 10 Downing Street for the LGBT community. Taking place on Wednesday 22 June, invites to the reception have been sent out to a variety of individuals in the LGBT community – including both business people, charity workers and celebrities.

“The Prime Minister’s annual reception for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community will this year have a focus on tackling homophobia in sport,” says the invite from Downing Street. “The event will bring together representatives of sport governing bodies, associations and clubs that have signed up to the Government’s Charter Against Homophobia in Sport, with gay sportsmen and women, medal winners from the Cologne Gay Games in 2010 and representatives from business, the arts, media, charities and campaigners for LGBT equality.”
The editor of Out In The City, David Hudson, is amongst those attending, as our the publishers of the magazine, Linda Riley and Sarah Garrett of Square Peg Media.

LGBT receptions in Downing Street began in 2009 when Gordon Brown was prime minister, but Mr Cameron has continued the tradition. He hosted last year’s event alongside the deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, who Mr Cameron jokingly referred to as “my civil partner”.
