Lesbian and gay officers at Hampshire Constabulary supporting LGBT History Month

First published in News by

HAMPSHIRE Constabulary’s team of lesbian and gay liaison officers will be supporting LGBT History Month.

The specialist officers work alongside lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities.

The annual LGBT History Month in February is themed around maths, science, and engineering.

Officers will be visiting schools and community events to highlight issues such as homophobia and bullying.

They will use the example of Second World War code breaker and computing pioneer Alan Turing who was persecuted for being homosexual.

A recent Gazette report said that a parish council could no longer afford the policing costs of remembrance day. Alan Turing was a persecuted homosexual who is remembered for helping to shorten WWII. I wonder who decides on the police's priorities?

Not sure what surprises me most. That there is a gay history month or that the police have a team (!) of gay liaison officers.
