Winner of the National Diversity Awards 2012
Lifetime Achiever Award
Peter’s incredible commitment to the human rights agenda most notably LGBT rights over the last 43 years is truly astonishing. He has inspired and led nearly 3000 direct action campaigns, written countless articles, 7 books, appeared on TV and radio and influenced changes to legislation internationally. From the late 1970s, Peter was a major proponent of a single unified equality law, to guarantee universal equal treatment and protect everyone against discrimination. His proposal for a comprehensive Equal Rights Act, to harmonise the patchwork of equality laws and create a level playing field of protection against discrimination, eventually found embodiment in the Equality Act 2010. Their current work as coordinator of the Equal Love campaign involves spearheading a dual campaign to end both the ban on same-sex civil marriages and the ban on opposite-sex civil partnerships.
