Our History

Past, present and future

Where are we going?

Our mission is simple: to create a fair and equal society where all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people can achieve their full potential. In 2022 it may be simple to write this down or say it out loud but in order to make it happen requires a great deal of change throughout all sections of society.


We will continue to work closely with a range of statutory, voluntary and private organisations to work towards the eradication of homophobia from service provision as well as providing direct support services to LGBT people.


Over the next few years we will be looking to cement the long term sustainability of the organisation by developing new and innovative projects and funding-generating activities.
