Stonewall’s latest social media poll, which ran on its Facebook and Twitter pages this week, has found that Britain is ready for an openly lesbian, gay or bisexual Prime Minister.
In the poll, which had 1073 responses, 59 per cent voted ‘yes, Britain is ready for an openly lesbian, gay or bisexual Prime Minister’ and 41 per cent voted ‘no.’
Ben Summerskill, Stonewall’s Chief Executive, said: ‘Although most people feel Britain is ready for an openly gay Prime Minister, sadly we’re still no closer to getting one. Parliament still chronically under-represents lesbian, gay and bisexual people. For example, there was just one openly lesbian MP in the last parliament. Stonewall recently worked with the Speaker’s Conference to address this and we’ll continue to work with parties to ensure the House of Commons more accurately reflects the people it serves.’
