Local MP David Mundell will host an event to celebrate Scotland's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

The Secretary of State for Scotland will be joined by representatives from the TIE Campaign, LGBT Youth Scotland and Stonewall Scotland, as well as MSPs and MPs.

The event, which takes place this evening, is being held to mark LGBT History Month in Scotland, and comes the day before ‘Purple Friday’, a day for people to show their support for the LGBT community.

Young people in Scotland deserve a society where their gender and sexuality has no limitation on their experiences or their aspirations. I am determined to ensure everyone in the Scottish LGBT community is treated with the respect and equality they deserve.

– David Mundell MP
