New Year Honours - Gay campaigners recognised

A police officer with the Metropolitan Police and the mother of a gay son who campaigned for the repeal of 'Section 28' have been honoured in the New Year Honours List, issued in the name of Her Majesty the Queen.

The MBE awarded to Inspector Paul Martin Cahill of the Metropolitan Police is for:


"services to diversity within the police and to the wider gay community."

The MBE awarded to Mrs Anne Patrizio is for:


"services to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in Scotland."

It is good to be able to end the year on a positive note.

Happy new year to all! May 2004 and beyond be peaceful, happy and prosperous for you.
