[We will support marginalised communities in the developing world,] hosting the UK government’s first ever international LGBT conference.

Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.53

Our verdict

  • This is a promise to back marginalised communities in developing countries by hosting the government’s first international LGBT conference.
  • As co-chair of the Equal Rights Coalition, the government planned on hosting a three-day international LGBT conference in London in May 2020. Due to COVID-19, the event has been postponed until further notice.
  • Although the event was postponed, the fact that it was planned, scheduled, and the government has said it will announce a new date in due course, means this policy is ‘in progress’.
