UK Gay News has endorsed the Green Party for the elections to the European Parliament.

1 June 2009

The paper cited that "The party's two current MEPs, Jean Lambert (London) and Caroline Lucas (South East) have served the European LGBT community well and their voting record is superb. There is no reason to believe that the Green MEPs in the new Parliament will not continue in the same way - it's in their manifesto."

Joseph Healy, #4 on our list of London European election candidates, said: "I am very pleased as an openly gay candidate for the Greens in the European Parliamentary elections that UK Gay News recognises the work of the Green MEPs in the European Parliament and is calling on LGBT voters to go Green on June 4th. I can guarantee that in the new Parliament, Greens will continue to campaign for LGBT citizens across Europe and to oppose homophobia."
