LGBT+ Pride: The fight for equality in 2021

Description

Boris Johnson has said the COVID-19 pandemic worsened LGBT+ inequality worldwide. Homosexuality is criminalised in 69 countries, causing many to fear violence and arrest if they seek medical help. With the UK appointing a new special envoy for LGBT+ rights, and the US to fill the position soon, what tactics are being used in the fight for equality?

Host Dermot Murnaghan speaks to special envoy Lord Herbert about why homophobic laws in the Commonwealth are often a legacy of Britain’s colonial past, his experience as the first out politician to be elected in a Conservative seat, and why he worries trans rights may be caught in a "culture war".
