And in Brighton in last month an ‘LGBT Flag’ was held up by a Labour Party rally and attended by many of the party’s youth supporters, who say it is a symbol of their shared sense of belonging.
A Labour Party spokesman said: ‘Any signs of intolerance at Labour Party events need to be met with constructive discussion and debate. ‘That is why we need to focus on creating an inclusive and diverse membership that can feel at home at a national political party that they feel safe and at peace on their terms.
‘We want more LGBT members who want to join the Labour Party, join the Labour Youth Network and want to be involved with the local Labour Party.

‘We want our members to feel valued and we want people of all walks of life, especially young people, to feel welcome in our ranks.’
