In the current climate our sexual freedom is under attack as never before. Successive pieces of the previous Government's legislation have succeeded in criminalising the normal sexual activity of hundreds of thousands of adult citizens based on flimsy evidence and a general feeling of distaste.

It is widely agreed and accepted that consenting activities between adults are just that, and that it is not the business of the state to legislate on grounds of taste. The freedom to express oneself sexually without fear of prejudice is a basic civil liberty.

Why is this idea important?

These laws, both those which have been passed and those that have been proposed, put thousands at risk of having careers and lives ruined simply because their sexuality does not fit what seems to be the previous Government’s view of what is right and proper.

If you search the internet you will find many leading legal figures agree that many formally innocent, law abidding, people are being criminalised and their human rights restricted.
