The introduction describes in broad terms the role that the European Convention on Human Rights has played in the development of ‘gay rights’. It considers how gay men and lesbians have used the Convention and the Strasbourg organs to challenge discrimination based on sexual orientation, and it places this within the context of current debates and disputes about human rights and the Convention in the UK.

Keywords:   Conservative Party, European Convention on Human Rights, human rights, gay and lesbian, Winston Churchill
