It’s pretty much confirmed all but in name that Boris Johnson will be next Prime Minister. As a bisexual woman, ahead of Pride this weekend, I want to talk about why Boris is no friend to those of us who are LGBT+.
Boris’ record on LGBT+ rights is mixed. Despite turning up to Pride in his early years as Mayor, Boris Johnson was a no show from 2011 onwards. Five years the London Mayor sat out one of the biggest events in London’s calendar, missing the opportunity to show his support for the LGBT+ community.
