U.K. LGBTQ Adviser Quits After Johnson Conversion Therapy U-Turn

The U.K.’s LGBT Business Champion resigned on Tuesday in protest at the government’s exclusion of transgender people from its plan to ban conversion therapy.

Iain Anderson, who was appointed to the new role in September, collaborated with business to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people at work. Politics that creates “dividing lines between LGB people and trans people will never be my approach,” he wrote in a resignation letter he posted on Twitter.
