Adrian Trett was born in Norwich and now lives in Bishops Ward, in the Vauxhall Constituency with his partner. He was educated at Eaton (City of Norwich) Comprehensive School, before going on to study European Studies (Politics and government) with French and Italian at the University of Kent at Canterbury.
After graduating, Adrian moved to London, and has since worked in both private and public sectors in the capital, working firstly in the Legal translation sector in the City, then joining Southwark Council and has worked in a variety of departments, Housing, Education, Strategy & Development and Children’s services, before returning to the translation industry in 2011. Currently, Adrian now works for a specialist multi- lingual recruitment firm based in the city, specifically recruiting for permanent translation/localization orientated roles.
Adrian joined the Liberal Democrats in 2006, and stood to be a Local Councilor in both the last two local elections in 2010 and 2014, and is known for his local community work within Waltham Forest, as an active School governor at Acacia Nursery, however since moving to be with his partner, Adrian now seeks to representative one of the most diverse constituencies in all aspects in London.
As a well-known, and respected equality campaigner, Adrian lead the Liberal Democrat campaign for Equal Marriage, as Chair LGBT+ Lib Dems, and the author of motion at the 2010 Lib Dem Conference which is where the same-sex marriage campaign began, and concluded in December 2013, as the date for those first same-sex marriages was announced by the Coalition government as March 28th 2014. Adrian campaigned in the media, on the radio and in the press to ensure the LGBT Community were given equal relationship status.
Commenting on his selection, Adrian said: “This is a crucial time for people in our constituency. Vauxhall has a range of local issues from housing and transport development to environmental concerns, but for me community cohesion is crucial, and therefore the level of hate crime, in all of its forms across the protected characteristics requires urgent action, and as an equality campaigner I will strive to fight for all diverse groups in the constituency”
