Warm Welcome from LGBT Humanists for Tatchell Award

Kenilworth, 19 March 2012 — The gay humanist charity the Pink Triangle Trust (PTT) has given a warm welcome to the award given by the UK National Secular Society to human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell.

In his speech of acceptance at the award ceremony to an audience which included prominent scientists, journalists and writers Mr Tatchell said: “Worldwide, organised religion is the single greatest threat to human rights; especially to the rights of women, LGBT people, atheists and minority faiths. Religious-inspired dogmas persecute Christians in Pakistan, Sunni Muslims in Iran, Shia Muslims in Bahrain and Jewish people in much of the Middle East.”

The PTT secretary, George Broadhead, commented: “This is precisely what LGBT humanists and secularists, including groups like the Gay and Lesbian Humanist Association (GALHA) and the PTT, have been saying for years.

“Warm congratulations on your award and more power to your elbow!”
