Jan Gooding, Chair of Stonewall’s Board of Trustees said: ‘We’re delighted Ruth Hunt has been granted a peerage. She’s an inspirational and dedicated leader who transformed Stonewall’s culture, including integrating trans communities into our work and forming a unique partnership with The Rainbow Project in Northern Ireland. I know that her collaborative and intelligent approach will add huge value in the House of Lords.
‘Ruth’s fourteen years at the charity has been marked by extraordinary progress in our mission to build acceptance for LGBT people, much of which she is responsible for. We are incredibly grateful for all the work Ruth has done to make the world better for lesbian, gay, bi and trans people. From all of us here at Stonewall: Congratulations Ruth!'.
