Five hundred protesters demonstrated outside Conservative headquarters last Sunday over shadow home secretary Chris Grayling’s comment that Christian B&B owners should be allowed to ban gay couples.

LGBT campaigner Peter Tatchell outlined David Cameron’s anti LGBT record—Cameron opposed the full repeal of section 28, voted to ban gay couples from adopting and opposed funding IVF for lesbians.

Protesters chanted, “We’re never voting Tory”.
