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!

UPDATE - April 2006

Hi – Allan and Ray here.
Still alive and carrying on the good gay causes fight
As and when we can – but we are entirely voluntary and have no contributions from anyone to help us at all.  We do it all we do on the tiny pension we have from our own pockets. It’d be lovely to have some money/ some legacy/ some benefactor to help us train up some younger guy to carry on when we get passed it.

So to all the people who have got in touch with us and we not got back to – sorry – we can only try to do so much.

So also to all the people who call at this our web site and find it much the same sorry story – with no money and only a limited amount of time and I suppose failing energies we do have a pile of  “WhenIGetRoundToIts”.

But as spring is in the air we put a best step and make this update.

For the days are getting warmer longer lighter so here it is – for APRIL 2006
Is a little up date.
Do we call this blogging?
The sort of thing the young do daily and we can get  up to only once a year – now !!!
Hey hey we can’t be as old as all that !!!

The court cases sad to say continue.
They come to us via this web site – and they come to us via friends and friends of friends within the gay community.  As most of you know we’ve been around a long long time. (See A History of CHE)

Sometimes though they don’t get to court – and yet the simple making an accusation however false will just in the current climate sadly ruin an innocent man’s life.
And we know the solution.
We link up with HAAP and FACT and attend and speak at conferences where many others caught up in these injustices are doing what they can.
And we talk and speak among gay groups from South London to the North East
and South West to North West.
N.B. We only touch cases remember in which we believe the guy is “innocent” by Our Books, and should be by any fair sensible jury.
Or even if some of the allegations were true they, to our mind, don’t matter much.

All cases that come to us of course we treat as confidential. And keep so.
Though in some cases the guys would be willing to tell the awfulness that’s happened to them – to a sympathetic media and we try to gain publicity – but we’re up against a whole barrage of fear of the paedophile that grips the gay movement’s media as much and as sadly as it does the broadsheets and the pinks.
