Sexuality

We believe that equality is all about love and we welcome the legislation for same sex marriage in England and Wales. British society’s views around sexuality may have moved forward, but there is still a long way to go to protect LGBTI rights in the UK as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people are still subject to negative and hurtful stereotypes.

The debate on gay marriage in the UK will continue  until Scotland and Northern Ireland allow same sex couples the same rights across the whole of the UK. The content that you will find here celebrates and lobbies for equality across all sexualities.

We are seeking volunteers of all types to work with us. You can write, create a film or infographic, tell your story, suggest ideas for new work and web content, agree to an interview or fundraise for us. You can help us  by simply sharing the  resources below to like minded friends and family by email or social media. Join us and help us create a truly GREAT BRITISH COMMUNITY.
