“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.” Universal Declaration of Human rights.
Although most of us believe in this principle, in reality, LGBT people are not always treated equally because of prejudice and discrimination. As an organisation, we are committed to supporting the legal rights of the LGBT Plus community.
Dumfries & Galloway LGBT Plus is a Scottish Incorporated Organisation set up in January 2015 for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and others similarly affected by minority issues of sexual orientation and/or gender identity e.g intersex, asexual or pansexual people as well as their families allies and supporters.
Within Dumfries & Galloway and surrounding regions and other rural areas, we promote equality and diversity and advance human rights by helping our members to live happier, safer, more active and healthier lives and engage more confidently within their communities. We work with organisations and communities so they can better support, include and value LGBT Plus adults, older people and families.
