Prime Minister Gordon Brown held the second reception for LGBT History Month on 24 February.
Both he and Harriet Harman reiterated their support for the successful month and assured the UK's LGBT communities that they would never walk the road alone in the journey to full equality.
After they left, Sarah Brown stayed and talked to guests for the remainder of the evening. Elly Barnes, David Watkins, Tony Fenwick and Sue Sanders, members of the History Month organising committee, were seen busily chatting to people and encouraging support and patronage.
