The UK government’s cancelled global LGBTQ+ conference could cost almost £600,000, official estimates have revealed. There has been widespread outrage at the government’s numerous U-turns on a comprehensive ‘conversion therapy’ ban, which has now resulted in a watered down version of what was originally promised.

More than 100 organisations dropped out of the Safe to Be Me event as a result of the backtracking including Stonewall, the Terrence Higgins Trust and the Global Network of Rainbow Catholics.

The conference was due to take place this summer to coincide with the 50th anniversary of London’s first Pride marches, though plans for it were eventually scrapped entirely – breaking a manifesto pledge made by the Conservative Party during the last general election.
