In an exclusive interview with KaleidoScot, Johann Lamont, leader of the Scottish Labour Party, answers six questions regarding LGBTI Equality in Scotland and beyond.
She said that the Glasgow Kiss during the Commonwealth Games was a culmination of a hard and long battle for LGBTI rights that she is committed to continue.
During the interview, that was held at Pride House, the leader of the Scottish Labour party also said that the UK should have an asylum policy that must be fair and equal towards LGBTI asylum seekers.
Lamont also made a commitment that if Labour would form the next government it will help fund LGBTI rights group internationally and also rigorously audit international development money to prevent anti-gay organisations from receiving it.
She called for LGBTI equality and fairness and anti-discrimination policies to be addressed within the context of the Commonwealth, at the next summit that is to be held in Malta in 2015.
Lamont further pledged that if elected to government her party would absolutely be committed to further LGBTI equality and combat any forms of discrimination.
“No matter what Scotland votes for [regarding independence] in September we still have to win the argument for equality,” she stressed.
