This weekend the Cambridge Student Liberal Democrats are hosting the Liberal Youth Cambridge Action Weekend! This is part of a campaign trail Liberal Youth has been running to help campaign for certain MP & MP hopefuls across the country and this weekend’s is Julian Huppert. We would encourage everyone interested to help campaign this weekend with us, & look forward to seeing you there!
The society’s Annual General Meeting will be held at 6pm in the Munby Room, King’s College. This is the time when the old Executive will stand down and we’ll be voting on a new one. All welcome – meet outside King’s.
Come along to the Knox Shaw Room in Sydney Sussex tomorrow at 19:30 for a Q&A with Lynne Featherstone, MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, Home Office Minister and former Equalities minister. As the first MP to join the Out4Marriage campaign, she launched the consultation of the UK government on equal marriage and still plays a key part in the future of LGBT+ rights in politics today.
Joining her will be Sarah Brown, well known trans activist and former councillor for Petersfield; Julian Huppert, MP for Cambridge, undoubtedly the best person to answer questions about LGBT+ issues in the local area and Ed Cearns, county councillor for Cambridgeshire and vocal LGBT+ rights activist, who organised Cambridge’s recent “Be the Rainbow” event. Along with speakers from LGBT+ charity Sexyouality, based here in Cambridge, we’ll be attempting to recreate a human rainbow with a plethora of coloured t-shirts and fabulosity.
This is a great chance to ask your own questions to people at the forefront of campaigning for equality and LGBT+ rights, both in Cambridge and nationally – come along, get informed and get involved.
