Homophobic crime has been on the rise in the capital lately and hate crime prosecutions in London rose by 33% (BBC video) over the past year. Transgender people or those about to have sex changes seem to be the new targets for hate crime in UK. Now, it’s time to take action. Targeting a person purely because of gender identity or sexual orientation is a shameful act and should never be tolerated.
London cabs provide gay and LGBT friendly cab services and promise all our passengers:
“Our drivers are dedicated to treat all passengers respectfully, regardless of gender, religion, clothing style or sexual orientation”.
Supporters of gay marriage
London Cabs support same-sex marriage and hope it will be legal in England and Wales within short, following the successful law changes in Scotland earlier this year. We cannot believe why on earth it is still not allowed with equal marriage in the United Kingdom. At least the government are about to make a decision in the coming months.
We’re supporting the LGBT community
Luckily, London is a LGBT friendly city in general and we hope the events organized for gay and transgender people will increase. If you’re still unsure why supporting LGBT is the right thing to do, we suggest reading ‘Becoming trans positive‘ by Ben Gooch.
