Matthew Sephton, the Chairman of LGBTory the Conservative LGBT group which is running the “think pink” campaign, told us : “The Conservative-led campaign for equal marriage means that same sex couples will be getting married as early as next year. David Cameron has kept his promise. This has shown voters that we are serious about equality and has brought the party more LGBT supporters.
“Conservative candidates for parliament and council want to engage effectively with their local LGBT communities and LGBTory is helping them to do so.”
Constituency chairman Emma Webster reacted to the campaign by saying: “The LGBT community want to support a party which backs hard-working people. As they get married and start families, they are concerned about education, pensions and not passing on Labour’s deficit to their children.
“Ed Miliband talks about One Nation Britain but he takes LGBT voters for granted. When I meet people on the doorstep, nobody wants to go back to 1970s Socialism and I know that many LGBT people in civil partnerships will welcome David Cameron’s tax cut for couples.
“I think that by giving Conservative activists a tool kit, we can get this message across to more members of the LGBT community.”
