Jake Hook co-founder of TheGayUK remarked: “2013 was an incredible year, so many great things happened for the LGBT community both at home and abroad.
The seeds of equality planted by the generations before us are starting to take root and without these people’s bravery, persistence and determination the journey would be much harder.
We’ve still got a long way to go and we still need to stand in solidarity with our LGBT brothers and sisters elsewhere in the world – but we are on the way.”
TheGayUK would like to thank everyone who voted.
