Theresa May hasn’t held the office of prime minister for very long, and she’s already sent out her first message to the LGBT community. Wishing the celebrators at Brighton Pride a very happy occasion, the former home secretary, who is the leader of the Conservative party called for unity with the community.

“I want to send my very best wishes to the many thousands who will come together for Brighton and Hove Pride this weekend. It is absolutely fitting that the UK’s biggest Pride festival should be in a city so famous for its tolerance and diversity. Brighton has led the way in campaigning for LGBT rights and equal marriage..” she said touting unity within the UK political landscape.

“I, myself, have seen first-hand the important work of the police to support the LGBT community, the great HIV charity Sussex Beacon and Brighton’s moving memorial to those who have lost their lives to AIDS. When I stood in Downing Street as Prime Minister for the first time last month, I said that I believe in a country that works for everyone, whoever we are and wherever we’re from,” she said.

“We rightly take pride in making Britain one of the most LGBT-friendly places in the world. We grieve with all LGBT communities after the tragic and senseless murders in Orlando and we express our determination to defeat all forms of bigotry and violence. Together we stand for a future where everyone can enjoy the freedom to live and love openly,” she added.

Theresa May hasn’t always had such a favorable opinion on the LGBT community, but has evolved while under the leadership of David Cameron.
