We're here to let all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people, here and abroad, know they're not alone.
We believe we're stronger united, so we partner with organisations that help us create real change for the better. We have laid deep foundations across Britain - in some of our greatest institutions - so our communities can continue to find ways to flourish, and individuals can reach their full potential. We’re here to support those who can’t yet be themselves.
But our work is not finished yet. Not until everyone feels free to be who they are, wherever they are.
We empower LGBT people to be their authentic selves, enabling them to realise and achieve their full potential, and we empower LGBT people and allies to create positive change. We will support individuals to understand how they can make a difference for LGBT people at work, home and in their communities. We will equip them with the tools and confidence to connect with, influence and enable others in their communities. They will challenge homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying, celebrate difference, and step up to improve inclusion and visibility of role models and allies. Increasingly, we will work in partnership to grow our reach, and network of empowered individuals, internationally.
We work with institutions to create inclusive and accepting cultures, to ensure institutions understand and value the huge benefits brought to them by LGBT people, and to empower institutions as advocates and agents of positive change. We will work with all organisations (including employers, schools, healthcare providers, sports organisations and religious institutions) to ensure they offer inclusive, equal and inspiring environments for LGBT people, and to empower them as advocates and agents of change in wider society. We will help institutions recognise the value of different perspectives, and the benefits these bring to employees, service users and members of the community. We will collaborate with local LGBT campaigners to help UK-based multinational employers extend their LGBT inclusion work to every country they have an influence in.
Changing hearts and minds
We work to ensure that LGBT people, across all communities, are valued, welcomed by all and can participate fully in society, and to ensure that LGBT people better understand and respect difference across LGBT life. We will go deeper into communities than ever before, working with those communities, their partners and allies, to demonstrate the strengths that our differences can bring. We will ensure that LGBT role models and allies are visible throughout public life to create an environment that enables all LGBT people to participate fully in society. We will work together, as diverse LGBT communities, and with our wider communities, to change and win hearts and minds, and to tackle prejudice or discrimination within LGBT communities.
Changing and protecting laws
We work to ensure that laws and rights essential for LGBT equality are created, maintained, protected and defended, so that LGBT people have equal rights here and abroad. We will continue to campaign and lobby governments to change laws that do not ensure equality for LGBT people, or laws that do not go far enough. We will ensure that laws already in place to protect LGBT people are not rescinded. We will work with governments and others to improve equality for trans people, collaborate on tackling hate crime and discrimination, and work with national bodies to ensure LGBT-inclusive policy across sectors (for example, sport).
