Canceled LGBT+ conference could demand £500,000 from government

Official estimates suggest that the government’s representative LGBT+ conference, which was canceled after controversial positions over a ban on conversion therapy for transgender people, could cost more than £500,000.

The global Safe To Be Me conference was scheduled to take place in London from 29 June.

However, it was canceled in early April after dozens of LGBT+ and HIV groups said they would not participate unless Boris Johnson returned to the promise of a trans-inclusive ban on conversion therapy.

Equality Minister Mike Freer said the government had spent £365,000 on the production until the House of Representatives was withdrawn. You will also have to pay a cancellation fee of £200,000 to the venue.

A Stonewall spokesperson said: “The conference was a missed opportunity to advance LGBTQ+ rights around the world and it is regrettable that the UK government’s actions have wasted resources and time.

“Transgender people are almost twice as likely to be targeted by proselytizing practices and it is a shame that the UK government has chosen to protect some LGBTQIA+ people from this abuse and others not.”
