Unknown to me the gay rights campaigners Stonewall make good money from a diversity champions scheme pitched to companies, public bodies and charities.
The charity markets the scheme as the “leading employers’ programme for ensuring all LGBTQ+ staff are free to be themselves in the workplace.”
That scheme may well have been needed when Stonewall was set up 32 years ago but today all companies and government departments know the right thing to do and will have their own schemes.
Which is why I back Liz Truss (the equalities minister and in my view a PM in the waiting) is pushing for all government departments to withdraw from the scheme.

First it costs money and secondly the civil service has its own tried and trusted diversity scheme.
Stonewall are becoming increasingly political in the transgender debate and I don’t think it helps their cause.
Lady Faulkner, the new head of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, made a good point last week when she said that women (I imagine she had JK Rowling in mind) had the right to question transgender identity without being abused, stigmatised or put at risk from losing their jobs.
In turn the Stonewall CEO Nancy Kelly said that although it believed in free speech (thank you for that) it was not without limit and there is a legal systems in place for people who are harmed by that.
Surely she is not conflating the argument about men becoming women and for instance antisemitism. She appears to be and if that is her view it is a disgrace.
