LGBT+ Rights are Human Rights

The Human Rights Act has delivered for LGBT+ people. It's provided us with rights and freed us from Government oppression and inaction. It forced Labour to allow us to serve openly in the military, and to legally recognise trans people.

Liberal Democrat Tom Brake MP says:

To walk away from the Human Rights Act and European Courts of Human Rights would remove at a stroke the moral authority we have when we engage with other countries.

These are fundamental rights we all have and they define how we treat our citizens and offer our citizens protection from the state.

Liberal Democrats fought in Government to stop the Tories trashing our human rights laws. We must all come together now to stop them trying it again.

In Government, the Lib Dems held back the Tories, but now Johnson's Conservatives want to weaken or scrap the Human Rights Act. Please sign up below to support the Lib Dems' campaign to save the Human Rights Act!
