A candidate for Nigel Farage’s new Brexit Party, Alka Sehgal Cuthbert was selected as a candidate for the single-issue Brexit Party, which was formed by ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage to stand candidates in the May 23 European Parliament election after a delay to Brexit. And she criticizes LGBT-inclusive education in faith schools of the UK as well as programs against homophobic and transphobic bullying in the schools across the country. “Educators are behaving like indoctrinators, and pushing an anti-Enlightenment, particularist line. Rather than promoting inclusivity, this fetishization of diversity actually reifies personal difference. Teaching kids to be careful about protected characteristics or supposedly vulnerable social groups is anti-universal – it encourages kids to see their peers as different to them on the basis of gender, race or sexuality,” she, in part, said about No Outsiders program in Birmingham. Addressing protests against inclusive education at Birmingham’s Parkfield primary school, she wrote that she understood parents who did not want their kids to be taught that homosexuality is morally equal to heterosexuality.
