Whilst I lived in Gibraltar I was very interested in the work of the Equality Rights Group, particularly in the area of sexual health on the Rock. Along with the chairman, Felix Alvarez and secretary, Charles Trico, I met with the territory’s Minister of Health, Dr John Cortes.
There were many words from the Minister and promises of further work to be done, but sadly there was a lack of communication in general. The project did not move as far as I had hoped before I had to leave the Rock and head for Dublin. I hope that the publication of the ERG’s latest book From Town to City will start to address the issues we were raising.
There is much to be read in the book. You can read From Town to City online.
