John Leech is one of the UK's most resilient, respected and dedicated politicians with a fierce and unrelenting passion for equality.


With a political career that spans more than 25 years in both local and national government, John's almost unparalleled record includes the historic campaign to legalise gay marriage, the seven-year battle to overturn WWII hero Alan Turing's criminal conviction for homosexuality, the huge campaign to outlaw homophobic chanting at football matches and led pressure for major football clubs Manchester United and Manchester City to introduce women teams.


When he's not fighting for a just and fair society, John can be found making national headlines for his incredible ability to single-handedly hold Manchester City Council to account. He recently disrupted the national agenda and caused widespread outrage when he called out Manchester City Council for its refusal to accept Syrian child refugees and its lack of action on homelessness.


In 2018, Apostrophe ran the digital marketing campaign for the local elections that saw John Leech's vote increase to its highest yet.


The campaign attracted national media with some critics claiming the party had "taken it too far." Others described it as "something you’d expect to see in the 2020 Presidential campaigns in the US, not Manchester’s council election." Either way, the campaign made historic breakthroughs in the city. 

Apostrophe Talent is proud to manage John Leech's PR and publicity.
