LGBT: sign petition on equality in Gibraltar

A few weeks ago now the Equalities bill (a private members sponsored bill) failed to make a successful passage through the Gibraltar parliament, The bill would have lowered the consensual age of same sex couples to that of other EU member areas and many other western societies which is 16 years of age. However the bill was voted against and therefore has breached a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights. See more here.

I have still not had a reply from David Milliband but hear there is now petition - do please consider signing: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/gibraltar-equalities-bill
