At these meetings, issues of concern to the LGBT Forum are raised, discussed and debated and actions are agreed.

We give feedback from the City Council’s Equality Advisory Group. We submit proposals and ideas to the York Fairness Commission, Holocaust Memorial Day and LGBT History Month as well as undertake many other initiatives.

We have light hearted discussions, plan projects with your input and have exciting guest speakers!

Meetings are regularly attended by elected City Councillors, Council staff, representatives of charitable organisations and our own dedicated LGBT Liaison Officer from North Yorkshire Police. This allows members to voice any concerns or raise any questions as they feel appropriate.

The York LGBT Forum is a welcoming, friendly and accommodating group.

Please come along and get involved, tell us what you think and make sure your voice is being heard
