What has Liz Truss’ new cabinet said about LGBTQ+ rights?

Reading now: 236

Liz Truss is officially the UK’s new Prime Minister, and has already appointed a brand new cabinet. But who are the new ministers, and what have they said about LGBTQ+ issues?

There have been no openly LGBTQ+ Cabinet members since 2019. David Mundell was the last openly gay man in a senior government role, but was sacked by Boris Johnson in a reshuffle.

Despite not currently having any openly queer Cabinet members, there are many who have vocalised their anti-LGBTQ+ stances. Each Secretary of State will have a range of responsibilities, some of which will impact the lives of queer people living in the UK.

The cabinet has a mixed voting record when it comes to their stances on LGBTQ rights, but here is the new-look cabinet, and where they stand on LGBTQ issues.
