Welcome to Adrian Hyyrylainen-Trett's web site!

The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.

Adrian Hyyrylainen-Trett was born in Norwich and now lives in Bishops Ward, in the Vauxhall Constituency with his husband. 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. Adrian worked for a specialist multi- lingual recruitment firm based in the city, specifically recruiting for permanent translation/localization orientated roles until 2016.

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.

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. Adrian since August 2016 has worked in the House of Lords as the Equalities Research Advisor to the Liberal Democrat Equalities Spokesperson.

Adrian stood for the Vauxhall Constituency in 2015 and managed to save his deposit in rather difficult circumstances, one of only a few who managed this achievement in London. He is now standing to be PPC in Ipswich in the Snap General Election in 2017.

Commenting on his selection, Adrian said: "he is looking forward to the campaign, and providing a challenging opposition to the current Incumbent Ben Gummer. No seat should be a shoe-in for anyone, and I intend to give the next five weeks my full attention to provide an alternative, open and tolerant candidate for the people of Ipswich".
