First Lesbian British Minister Comes

In an interview for the Independent in London, junior environment minister Angela Eagle said that she was in a happy, long-term relationship with a woman.

She said the Labour party and her family, including her twin sister who is also a Labour MP, had always been supportive.

While she made the announcement “to get things sorted out,” she has no plans to become active for gay rights, or to bring her “very busy” partner to governmental functions.
