2020: LGBT+ History Month Event

February each year is designated LGBT+ History Month, and in 2020 for the first time ASLEF’s LGBT+ Representative Committee held an event to mark the month.

Taking place in Soho, the event was well attended and ASLEF members were joined by Mike Jackson from Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners, who spoke about the group’s history working to support mineworkers in the South Wales valleys during the 1980s strikes, and today campaigning for equality alongside the trade union movement.

Other speakers included Mick Whelan, General Secretary, and David Jones, Chair of ASLEF’s LGBT+ Representative Committee.
