Seeking Justice for the Gay Community
 

CHE (Campaign for Homosexual Equality) submitted a motion on a Statute of Limitation to this year's Annual General Meeting of LIBERTY (The National Council for Civil Liberty).

The motion had been passed unanimously by CHE in 2008 and CHE has been affiliated to LIBERTY for more than 20 years.

But just submitting this motion has resulted in LIBERTY chucking CHE out – after saying the motion was unacceptable for debate.

So much for LIBERTY
So much for free speech
So much for fair debate

Money Appeal

All the time we’ve been operating we’ve only had our own little bits of money Plus sometimes £20 or so for doing a talk to a Gay group - So we’ve not had a bank account.
But CHE have now given us £500 in a cheque. Ta.
And we’ve opened a bank account so we can now appeal for funds.

We also now have a PAYPAL account!

40 YEARS OF LGB CAMPAIGNING

Manchester City Council commemorate 40TH anniversary of The North West Homosexual Law Reform Committee.

On Tuesday 5th October 2004 a reception was held to mark the 40th anniversary of The NWHLRC which was founded in 1964 by gay rights activists Allan Horsfall and Colin Harvey with an historic meeting on 7th October 1964 at Church House on Deansgate.

At the time sex between men was illegal in the UK and their aim was to lobby for change.

The law did change in 1967 and the organization became The Campaign for Homosexual Equality with offices in Kennedy Street and then King Street in Manchester.By 1977 CHE had 120 local groups and 5,000 members and worked tirelessly to progress the cause of equality for lesbians and gay men.

Speakers at the Town Hall reception included Allan and broadcaster Ray Gosling who are featured in an exclusive interview in his months outnorthwest. Other speakers at the event were Councillors Pat Karney and Mary Murphy, Griffin Vaughan Williams, Liz Stanley and Martin Stafford.

The Lesbian and Gay Foundation were pleased to be there and will continue to celebrate our regions proud LGB history for future generations. We are planning to launch the North West's largest LGB archive in February 2005 for more info on that please contact allison@lgf.org.uk and outnorthwest will be featuring interviews with many pioneers from the last 40 years over the coming months so watch this space!

Many thanks to Manchester City Council for continually recognising the many diverse needs of the Lesbian,Gay and Bisexual Community.
