Liberal Judaism’s Rabbi Janet Darley was one of four clergy to lead an interfaith blessing at this year’s PinkNews Awards.

Janet was joined on stage by Bishop of Buckingham Dr Alan Wilson, Bishop of Manchester David Walker and Imam Mohamed Patel.

She said: “It was a privilege to offer a blessing at the PinkNews Awards gala evening, to see the work that has been done in so many areas and to celebrate victories.

“The evening also served to remind me that there is still much to do and that working for LGBTQI+ rights are everyone’s responsibility. Together we can build a world of inclusion, where people are not victimised or attacked for being who they are.”

Those in attendance at the PinkNews Awards included Home Secretary Sajid Javid, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, former Prime Minister Tony Blair and House of Commons Speaker John Bercow.
