The UKs first ever LGBT History Month magazine is being launched with the support of Angela Eagle
Budget airline EasyJet yesterday offered to fly Pope Benedict XVI to the UK following the recent controversy surrounding his viewpoints on British Equality laws and estimated cost of his visit.
The Sun has caused havoc after publishing a poll yesterday asking whether gay people should be allowed to be cabinet ministers.
The Government will not push through proposals that churches argue would restrict their ability to deny jobs to gay people and transsexuals, Equality Minister Harriet Harman has confirmed.
A gay bull saved after a campaign backed by Simpsons co-creator Sam Simon appears to have found romance within minutes of arriving at his new home.
Benjy, from County Mayo, Ireland, was destined for the abattoir after showing more interest in breeding with other bulls than cows.
He arrived at Norfolk's Hillside Animal Sanctuary on Sunday where he befriended Alex, a one-year-old bullock.
"He's a handsome little lad, so you can't blame him," said a spokeswoman.
Mr Simon said it "thrills" him to have helped Benjy.
One-year-old Alex helped calm Benjy who was slightly "stressed" after his long trip. Benjy arrived to a gathering of the media ready to capture the two-year-old's arrival in Norfolk. His plight was championed by the Animal Rights Action Network (ARAN) in Ireland.
Stefanie Leary, yard manager at Hillside, said: "Benjy's here because he's gay and is of no use to the farming industry. This has happened to have saved his life.
"Today has gone reasonably well. He's travelled a long distance and is stressed, but he's coping with it well."
Benjy will spend a few days in isolation, but within sight of Alex and others for company. Gay and animal rights campaigners launched a joint online appeal to save the two-year-old Charolais bull.
It raised £10,000 in weeks, helped by a £5,000 donation from Mr Simon. The money will be used to fund Benjy's keep and welfare.
The Simpson's producer, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2012, was alerted to the bull's plight by animal rights campaigners PETA.
"I believe in compassion and empathy for all living beings - regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, or species," he said.
