Allan Horsfall (20 October 1927–27 August 2012) was a British gay rights campaigner and founder of the North West Committee for Homosexual Law Reform, which became the Campaign for Homosexual Equality. In Horsfall’s entry in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Peter Tatchell described him as ‘one of the grandfathers of the gay rights movement in Britain” and “one of the truly great pioneers of LGBT equality in Britain’.
