Our Future Plans

LACK OF VISIBLE LGBT ROLE MODELS IN BRITISH SOCIETY

Our Response :

We have a responsibility to empower LGBT people and their allies in all aspects of their lives, to enable them to be agents for change in their communities and to challenge homophobic, biphobic and transphobic discrimination.

FURTHER LACK OF VISIBILITY FOR BAME, DISABLED AND LOW INCOME LGBT PEOPLE

Our Response :

We will do much more to improve the experiences of trans people, BAME, and disabled LGBT people, as well as those from low income backgrounds. We will reach deeper in to these communities, and help wider communities be active allies to all LGBT people.

FEAR OF BACKLASH AND DISCRIMINATION AMONGST LGBT PEOPLE

Our Response :

We will work with LGBT communities and allies to provide effective tools that empower them to influence and enable others in their communities. We will empower LGBT people to stand up as role models and leaders, and empower allies to realise the positive difference they can have in celebrating difference and improving inclusion.

EXPERIENCES OF LGBT PEOPLE DIFFER GREATLY

Our Response :

We will ensure that the specific challenges facing older LGBT people, LGBT people in rural areas and LGBT people from faith communities are considered as part of our engagement. We will value all the people we work with, sharing our expertise and learning from others.
