(1) Acknowledging the suffering he has caused and apologise to the people he has victimized.
(2) Make a positive statement affirming his respect for gay people and his condemnation of homophobic violence.
(3) Come to an agreement with the record companies to withdraw his murder songs from circulation or, if this cannot be agreed, donate his royalties from these songs to a gay organisation campaigning against homophobic violence, such as J-Flag.

15-07-2004 06:55“Ken Livingstone has done great work for the gay community, but by rolling out the red carpet for Dr al-Qaradawi he is siding with an oppressor of gay Muslims in Britain and throughout the Islamic world. In the name of fighting Islamophobia, the Mayor is colluding with homophobia. He seems to be downgrading the human rights of lesbians and gay men in order to appease Muslim fundamentalists.”
