To kick off LGBT+ History month we’re calling all members who identify as LGBT+ to sign up to our new mailing list.
We’re looking to pull together a meeting of LGBT+ activists in the region with an aim to eventually launch a new LGBT+ group in the region. If this is something you might be interested in, then please let us know by signing up here: https://tinyurl.com/GMBLGBTGroup
LGBT+ History month takes place every year in February and is a celebration of the history of LGBT+ people. Unions have played a pivotal role in shaping that history from the establishment of the first LGBT+ self-organised groups within unions in the 1970’s to the passing of LGBT+ rights motions at Labour Party Conference in the 1980’s to the eventual passage of the Equality Act in 2010 to name a few. The struggle has been a long one and it is far from over, the price of equality is eternal vigilance.
