    Human rights are under threat in our twinned towns in Poland: across the UK it's time to help

    We're asking local councils twinned with towns in Poland to start active diplomatic engagement to champion equality and human rights in the face of the "LGBT ideology free" zones Poland has created. Local communities in our twinned towns are now under threat, people are discriminated against, and human rights have been attacked.

  • Census 2021 - 21st March

    1. This census will collect information on the LGBT+ population for the first time.

    2021's census will be the first UK census to include both a question on sexual orientation, and one on gender identity, for people over 16 years of age. Given the importance of the census as a robust universal measure of demographics at a local level, whilst these questions are voluntary, we believe it is vital that everyone in the LGBT+ community who feels comfortable doing so stands up to be counted. The resourcing of services which meet the needs of our community will be partly determined by population data gathered in the census.

    1st February marks the beginning of LGBT+ History Month. Launched in 2005, LGBT+ History Month is a time when people come together to share and tell stories of the experiences, lives and achievements of LGBT+ people throughout society. Just like with Black History Month (October) or Disability History Month (which runs from November into December), it's typically filled with events (check ours out here) and discussion. LGBT+ History Month reminds us of the progress we've made, but also warns us about the injustices that we have only recently escaped - and injustices that are still with us.

    This LGBT+ History Month we'll be looking at some of the powerful stories about and told by LGBT+ people throughout time. We'll be looking at the injustices that LGBT+ people have lived with, and at how far we've come.

    But although we've come far, the struggle is not over. LGBT+ people still face injustices, institutional failures, and particular challenges: from improving LGBT+ inclusive education and health services, to tackling transphobia and biphobia, and ensuring victims of hate crime get the support they need there is still much to do.

    Tuesday's judgement shows once again the damaging impact of the alarmist rhetoric around trans young people which we have seen in the media in recent years. It could have a significant negative impact on trans young people that require hormone blockers, and undermines young people's bodily autonomy.
