Love & Pride: let’s celebrate our diversity & stand together for equality.
‘Love & Pride’ is all about LGBT Equality: ‘LGBT’ is shorthand for a range of sexual orientations and gender identities, including: lesbian, gay, bi and trans.
People of diverse orientations and identities are valuable members of our community, who bring a lot to society: our diversity makes us stronger. Unfortunately, LGBT people are often not given the rights and respect they deserve.
Let’s make sure that LGBT people are accepted and celebrated in our society. Throughout April & May 2017, pop into Peace Hub to:
- Find out more
- Read about personal stories
- Play our ‘LGBT Legends’ game
- Share your experiences
- Take action for Sam, a trans man who has faced abuse from the police in Venezuela
