Queer Question Time
A political debate organised by Birmingham Pride Community Trust, the event involved representatives of the three main political parties answering questions about LGB issues from members of the public. The panel consisted of Clare Short (Lab), Andrew Mitchell (Con) and Dr Richard Brighton (LibDem)
The event made headline news when the stage was gatecrashed by Ms Nicole Sinclaire, a prospective UKIP candidate for Rowley Regis. Eventually five police officers had to remove her from the stage.
