Ministry of Justice supports History Month

We are very pleased to add the Ministry of Justice’s logo to the LGBT History Month website as they offer us both financial and intellectual support.

Their logo joins those of other parts of the criminal justice system – the Crown Prosecution Service and the Metropolitan Police Service and Authority, who have supported us from the outset. We are also very pleased to have the Pre-Launch for LGBT History Month 2008 hosted by the London Criminal Justice Board on 26th November 2007 at the Royal Courts of Justice.

It is reassuring to note that the criminal justice system sees our work as challenging the ignorance and stereotyping of LGBT people from which much homophobic crime stems. We are delighted that they see a major part of their role as working for prevention of such crime rather than only the effective prosecution of it when it occurs.

This is a function of their role that the education system has yet to recognise and embrace.

We are proud to have these organisations amongst our sponsors. A full list of our sponsors can be seen at the bottom of our website's homepage and we are keen to hear from any others who wish to support this important work.
