Sex education is OK by us

02 August, 2019

• AT our July general meeting Westminster North Constituency Labour Party overwhelmingly passed a resolution in support of LGBT+ Labour’s view that inclusive lessons about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and related communities should be taught in schools in response to protests outside Birmingham schools by parents opposing such programmes.

The draft Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (England) Regulations 2019 bill was recently supported by our MP Karen Buck in parliament, alongside every MP in Westminster, Camden and Islington.

To quote Angela Eagle in a debate last month: “We are not going to get back in the closet, or hide, or be ashamed of the way we are”.
