Honourable member of United Kingdom Parliament, Mr David Lammy sent a warm message of support to London’s LGBT art festival GFEST.  GFEST – Gaywise FESTival has announced an exciting and ambitious 2010 programme recently on its website: GFEST 2010 will run from 8 Nov to 21 Nov 2010.

Mr Lammy, in his message of support, says, “City of London is exceptional in its highly diverse people and cultural expressions, and so is uniquely placed to promote inclusivity, diversity and tolerance in both the UK and the wider world. GFEST is doing just this: its events are attended by all Londoner’s, regardless of their sexuality, and it serves as an important way of ensuring LGBT culture breaks the barriers into the minority community where being a homosexual, let alone expressing it, continues to be discriminated against.”

He added he would like to express his admiration and support of ‘both this wonderful festival’ and of the work of Wise Thoughts, the art charity that organises the festival. Mr Lammy is a key patron of the organisation.
