Full Equality for LGBT+ People
Labour Party Manifesto 2020

Labour has always championed LGBT+ rights. Now is the time to address the remaining cultural problems that cause discrimination against LGBT+ people.

In Government, Labour has delivered on the Marriage Equality referendum, the Children & Family Relationships Bill, amending Section 37.1 of the Employment Equality Act and Ireland’s first Gender Recognition Act.

Our plan for the next five years:

  • Enact a national LGBT+ strategy focused on tackling hate crimes, combatting discrimination and improving the mental and sexual health of LGBT+ people
  • Fully commence all sections of the Children and Family Relationships Act
  • Expunge the criminal records of gay men convicted under historical indecency laws
  • Review the operation of the Gender Recognition Act in 2017
