Sarah Named On Pink List For Second Year Running


Cambridge City Councillor, Sarah Brown has been named among the most influential lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in Britain for the second year running.

Sarah is named at number 34 in the Independent on Sunday Pink List of 100 people.

The list is topped by Olympic boxer, Nicola Adams and includes TV presenter, Gok Wan and singer, Will Young and illusionist, Derren Brown among other famous names.

Sarah, who represents Petersfield on the city council and serves on the executive of the Lib Dems national LGBT group, said: “I am delighted to be included in this list for the second year running alongside some high profile people.

“That’s why the Pink List is so valuable; it recognises not only the work of the A list celebrities but all those activists across the country working for LGBT people.

"I have worked hard this year on marriage equality, transgender healthcare and other LGBT issues.

“There has also been real movement on equality issues thanks to Lib Dems in government. Former Equalities Minister, Lynne Featherstone has worked tirelessly for LGBT people and we have a great foundation going forward."
