Humanists UK, known from 1967 until May 2017 as the British Humanist Association (BHA), is a charitable organisation which promotes Humanism and aims to represent "people who seek to live good lives without religious or superstitious beliefs" in the United Kingdom by campaigning on issues relating to humanism, secularism, and human rights.
A humanist campaign group wants four-year-olds to be taught about LGBT issues – and has branded religious views on sexuality “discriminatory”. Humanists UK, formerly known as the British Humanist Association, issued a statement backing Government plans on new primary school Relationships Education. Under the proposals, children will be taught about “different types of relationships”, which critics fear could include homosexuality, transsexualism and same-sex marriage.
The organisation's aims includes: "The promotion of equality and non-discrimination and the protection of human rights as defined in international instruments to which the United Kingdom is party, in each case in particular as relates to religion and belief."
