Towards Equality for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender
The West of Scotland LGBT (Lesbian,
Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) Forum is an umbrella organisation
which brings together organisations and groups representing lesbians,
gay men, bisexual and transgender people and their interests in
the West of Scotland. The principal objectives of the Forum are
to promote equal rights and equal participation for LGBT people
in all walks of life, to provide facilities and opportunities
in the interests of improving their quality of life and to promote
community development. Most of the work is done by the member
organisations, each of which retains its own identity and by the
Forums partners in the statutory and voluntary sectors.
The specific role of the Forum is to bring organisations and groups
together in order to provide opportunities for networking, information
exchange, cooperation, coordination and in appropriate cases,
collective representation and action.
The West of Scotland LGBT Forum
meets every six weeks and works with relevant statutory and voluntary
bodies to exchange information, ensure equality and effect change
where necessary. The Forum responds to consultations, informs
on LGBT issues and commissions information provision.
Membership of the Forum: If your group, or as an individual that
you feel that you have got something to offer the Forum and interested
in joining please contact us.
