West Scotland MSP Jamie Greene says he is delighted to have been appointed as co-convener of the LGBTI+ Cross Party Group in the Scottish Parliament.

Greene, who was the group’s founder, says that as co-leader of the group he will continue to champion LGBTI+ issues over the course of the Parliament.

Mr Greene said: “I have suffered at the hands of horrendous sexuality based abuse over the years and felt it my duty to do what I can through my position as an MSP to try make life better for the next generation of young LGBTI people.”
