Europe’s biggest LGBT rights organisation has split after being accused of promoting a "trans agenda" at the expense of gay and lesbian rights.

Stonewall is known for campaigning for the equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people across Britain. The charity’s mission statement says that it aims “to create inclusive and accepting cultures”.

However, following a meeting on Tuesday night - and amid an ongoing row about trans inclusion - the charity has divided and forged a splinter group.

Announcing themselves as the LGB Alliance, the group, formed of “influential lesbians, gay men and bisexuals” met in central London last night and forged the new organisation in a bid to “counteract the confusion between sex and gender which is now widespread in the public sector and elsewhere”.

Simon Fanshawe, who co-founded Stonewall in 1989, was among those speaking at the event last night in central London.
