"Britain's first organised under-18s night for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people is being held in Maidstone."
This is a surprise first. Just three years ago Hazel Dawe (chair of Kent Green Party) was speaking at a protest outside County Hall to get Kent County Council to lift its own version of the Section 28 ban on Kent schools. This was lifted last year (possibly in 2006).
Maidstone gets libertarian!
Shame its in a pub, but never the less it's welcome news.
