Stonewall annual dinner raises £470,000 for LGBT equality

(GayWebSource.com - Gay News & Press Network) - Posted by mysocalledgaylife.com

Speakers on the night included Stonewall CEO Ruth Hunt, Vicar of Finedon, broadcaster and writer Reverend Richard Coles and award-winning writer, actor and director Stella Duffy. All emphasised that while there are certainly legislative achievements to celebrate, there is still a lot to do to achieve social equality for LGBT people.

Guests on the night included Graham Norton, Clare Balding, Marcus Collins, Robin Windsor, Alicya Eyo, Lord Alli, Stella Duffy, Jack Monroe and John Amaechi.

Money raised from the event will support Stonewall’s work to go deeper into communities and help to improve the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people.

Top auction prizes included a private dinner with Liz Hurley and Joan Collins, a mint condition 7” single signed by the Pet Shop Boys and Dusty Springfield, lunch with Lord Michael Cashman in the House of Commons, and a signed self-portrait of Sir Ian McKellen.

Jan Gooding, Chair of Stonewall’s Board of Trustees, said: ‘The Stonewall Equality Dinner is an extremely important event in the organisation’s fundraising calendar. Not only is it a chance to celebrate how far lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans equality has come, but it’s also an opportunity to focus on the work that’s left to do and raise vital funds to achieve it.’

Ruth Hunt, Stonewall’s Chief Executive, thanked supporters on the night, saying: ‘We’ve come so far in our journey towards equality, but there are still so many big issues that affect different parts of our community. Our work will not stop until every LGBT person, in every country, school, church, street, hospital and school, is free to be themselves and is accepted without exception.’

HRC Endorses ‘The Fairness for All Hoosiers Act’

(GayWebSource.com - Gay News & Press Network) - Posted by Michael Lamb - Echelon Magazine

 Today the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization, endorsed the “Fairness for All Hoosiers Act” as a solution to stop the damage caused by the new Indiana anti-LGBT religious discrimination law signed in to law by Governor Pence.

“All Hoosiers, from Gary to Indianapolis to Evansville, deserve to be treated fairly and equally regardless of who they are or who they love,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “Governor Pence should stop the backpedaling and come out strongly in favor of this new pro-equality legislation. If he’s serious about sending the right message and ensuring the bill he signed in to law isn’t used to discriminate against LGBT people in his state, then now is the time to prove it by endorsing this bill.”

The “Fairness for All Hoosiers Act” legislative proposal would:

-Update the state’s civil rights laws against discrimination in housing, employment, and public accommodations to provide protections for LGBT Hoosiers.

-Clarify that the recently enacted Indiana religious discrimination law cannot be used to allow discrimination prohibited under state or local laws.

HRC is a founding member of the Freedom Indiana coalition—a campaign of state and national organizations who worked to try to stop the anti-LGBT bill from becoming law.
