The Pink Triangle Trust

News Release – 1 May 2007


KENILWORTH, 1 MAY 2007 — The gay humanist charity the Pink Triangle Trust (PTT) has reported a successful year.

Set up in 1992, the PTT continues to get generous bequests and donations from people wishing to support its educational work concerning all aspects of homosexuality and humanism.

Over the past year, it has appointed three new trustees: Andrew Copson, a classics graduate from Oxford University, a member of the winning team of the 2005 Young Educational Thinker of the Year programme, and Education and Public Affairs Officer for the British Humanist Association; Stuart Draycott, a longstanding member and former chair of the Gay and Lesbian Humanist Association (GALHA); Jim Herrick, a founder member of GALHA, its current chair, and a member of the Council of Management of the National Secular Society, The charity has appointed Whiting & Partners as its accountants.

George Broadhead, GALHA’s former longstanding secretary, continues as the PTT’s secretary. He also continues to co-ordinate its nationwide secular humanist ceremony of love and commitment for same sex-couples which the Trust has been arranging for the past 11 years. The Trust relinquished its role as publisher of Gay and Lesbian Humanist magazine at the end of 2005. The magazine was retitled Gay Humanist Quarterly and is published by GALHA. However, the cost of editing and printing it are met by the PTT.

George Broadhead said: “The trustees are very grateful for all the donations and bequests the PTT has received. These, and sound policies, have put its finances in a healthy state at the end of the financial year. The trustees are also very grateful to Brett Humphreys for his dedicated hard work over many years as the Trust’s former treasurer.”
