Yesterday David Cameron held the second event at 10 Downing Street (the first was this time last year) to demonstrate the coalition’s commitment to LGB&T equality.
The particular focus of this event was the Sports Charter which the government is asking sporting bodies and individuals to sign up to – to kick homophobia and transphobia out of sport and I have written about this very important campaign before on this blog several times.
Many sporting bodies were represented at the event – and are signed up to the charter. To show your support you can sign up here.
Just on a personal note – I used to be in my school’s tennis team (many decades ago) and in those days the ball boys (and girls) for Queens Tournament the week before Wimbledon came from London schools and I was one such for about three years running. So it was a real honour and pleasure to meet Billie Jean King at the event – for whom I did indeed ball girl all those years ago!
