  • Bi Visibility Day 2018 - Northwest Liberal Democrats
    Article: Sep 24, 2018

    Yesterday was Bi Visibility Day. Our Chair, Jennie, wrote a piece for Liberal Democrat Voice, reproduced here:

    Today we are marking the twentieth annual Bi Visibility day, which aims to raise the profile and visibility of bisexual people within our society - a society which so often overlooks them. Whilst great progress has been made in advancing rights and acceptance for gay and lesbian people (although of course, there is more to be done), bisexual people often suffer from assumptions based on the gender of their current (or last) partner and the prejudices of their peers. Media portrayals can trivialise their experiences, treat them as curiosities, or suggest that their sexual appetites are greedy and promiscuous. In such a climate, young bisexuals can feel pressured to "pick a side" and this is part of the reason why bi people suffer from far worse rates of mental illness than either gay or straight people. On top of this, the needs of bisexuals are often overlooked in the provision of health and social services.

  • Layla Moran
    Article: May 23, 2018

    Speaking ahead of the 30th anniversary of Section 28 which prevented schools from promoting homosexuality, Liberal Democrat Education spokesperson Layla Moran has called on the Government to make Sex and Relationships Education fully LGBT+ inclusive.

    Earlier this week Welsh Liberal Democrat Education Secretary Kirsty Williams announced that all schools in Wales will teach a new sex and relationships curriculum which will include lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex topics, as well as issues of sexual consent and prevention of violence against women.

    Layla said: "In coalition Government in Wales, Liberal Democrats have made sure that sex education is fit for purpose in the modern age. Teachers will be given the proper training to provide high quality education about healthy relationships, sexuality, gender, consent and abuse which covers all gender identities and sexual orientations.

    Ahead of a Senedd statement on International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia, the Welsh Liberal Democrats have urged Wales to build on recent progress in LGBT rights and fight for safety, equality and freedom for LGBT people across the globe.

    There is no doubt that the past few years have seen great strides in LGBT rights in the UK and across the world, but there is far more that needs to be done to create a world where every LGBT person can live safely, equally and freely.

    Responding to comments by the BMA's Welsh General Practitioners Committee that a full Gender Identity Clinic service is unlikely to be made available in Wales, the Welsh Liberal Democrats have called for an urgent assessment on progress on the establishment of Wales' first Gender Identity Clinic.

    The BMA have claimed transgender people are being let down by an unacceptable lack of progress towards the establishment of a Gender Identity Clinic (GIC) in Wales and that they have no confidence in a proper service being provided.
