Our board member Bea joined our friends of LGBT Labour in Liverpool in order to talk about the debate of the UK leaving the European Union (Brexit). Bea brought some elements on the trans perspective with a European background! Great collaboration in presence of Theresa Griffin MEP & Cllr Kevin Peel.
“Great joint event with LGBT Labour in Liverpool this evening, with contributions from Theresa Griffin MEP, Cllr Kevin Peel and Bea Tilanus from Rainbow Rose. The EU enshrined in law protection from discrimination for LGBT people and Labour MEPs and their allies in the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament have championed further progress for LGBT people in the EU and across the world. Britain has been a leader in equality issues – British people have benefited from the EU and the rest of Europe has benefited from our championing of equal rights. We’ve got a lot more to do, but we can only do it if we continue working together in the EU with our progressive allies!“, says the Labour Movement for Europe NW on their Facebook site.
