LGBT campaigners were hopeful Tuesday that a call by British Prime Minister Theresa May for Commonwealth countries to reform outdated anti-gay legislation would help to stop widespread persecution and discrimination.LGBT campaigners have used the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) to call for Britain to apologise and push for change, launching a petition, a picket and lighting up the Houses of Parliament with a call for decriminalisation.Activists said they hoped May's comments would start to change the conversation in countries where LGBT people are treated as criminals and help to reverse the harm caused.Some activists, however, did not think May's comments would lead to permanent change even though she said Britain would support any country wanting reform.
