UK Government’s LGBT advisory panel disbands after three members resign

The LGBT panel was established as part of Theresa May’s 2018 LGBT Action Plan. The aim of the advisory panel was to offer insight “on issues and policies concerning lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.” According to the BBC, a government spokesman has said a replacement for the panel “will be set out in due course”.

The dissolving of the LGBT panel follows the resignation of three leading equality advisors. The first government advisor to quit was Jayne Ozanne, a key member of the government’s LGBT advisory panel and a prominent gay evangelical Christian, citing “ignorance” on behalf of ministers about LGBTQ+ issues.
