Support your chosen leadership candidates – and the Lib Dem presence at Prides

Going to a Lib Dem event and wondering what to wear?

Want to show which leadership candidate you are supporting?

Jennie Rigg, who designs most of the t-shirts on behalf of the Awkward Squad writes here about how any profits go to LGBT+ Lib Dems to fund Pride packages.

Liberal Democrats have been at the forefront of LGBT+ rights for so long and it’s fantastic that both leadership candidates are enthusiastic supporters.

Women come in all shapes and sizes and girls should be …
