Motion text

That this House welcomes findings from recent research commissioned by LGBTQIA+ charity, Stonewall, which finds that levels of acceptance and respect of the LGBT community is now at an all-time high in the UK; celebrates that now anti-LGBT sentiments are restricted to a tiny minority of the public; welcomes that the most common feeling reported towards the LGBT population is respect; recognises that now the public are four times more likely to feel positively towards the LGBT community than they are negatively; is proud of the overwhelming progress that has been made in 35 years where two-thirds of the UK public previously felt that same-sex relationships were always wrong; further understands that even a small minority of the public holding negative feelings towards the LGBT community will have a significant negative impact on the safety of the group; recognises that homophobia, biphobia and transphobia are inextricably linked; and further implores everyone to do more to encourage active support for the LGBTQIA+ community to create a fairer, safer and more inclusive world for all.
