Unions join religious groups to fight homophobia

The UK’s Trades Union Congress (TUC) will be joining human-rights organisations, academics and religious groups today at a conference in London to address the growing problems of homophobia and transphobia.

The TUC-sponsored conference – Faith, Homophobia, Transphobia and Human Rights – follows up an initial meeting on homophobia among religionists in 2007, which was supported by 52 organisations and attended by 250 delegates, according to UK Gay News.

“The conference aims to build an alliance between people of faith and those concerned with social equality.”
