    Each year the 1st December, World AIDS Day arouses a series of different emotions for me from relief, to tears, to pride and to survival that I've surmounted another six months.

    You may wonder why, in 2017 this means so much to me and engulfs me in such a fashion. Well, I was diagnosed on the 3rdJune 2004, which is ironically the halfway point of every year between December 1st. It is my HIV positive anniversary which many people, who have been diagnosed, have etched on their psyche for ever.

  • Campaigners holding the Bisexual flag
    Article: Sep 14, 2017

    Stockport Town Hall debates how to serve bisexual residents most effectively tonight with a motion moved by Lib Dem councillor Lisa Smart.

    Welcoming the motion for debate, LGBT+ Lib Dems Chair Jennie Rigg said, "Too often in talking about 'LGBT' policy-makers concentrate on those first two letters. Ahead of Bi Visibility Day it is excellent to hear from Lib Dem councillors putting the focus firmly on the 'B' and the many ways bisexual people face specific challenges."

Welcome to the website of LGBT+ Lib Dems. We are the Liberal Democrats' party organisation committed to promoting the policies of sexual and gender minorities - including gay men, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people - and to ensuring that the party's policies address their needs.
