About this network...
Leading cultural change and enriching society around diverse and inclusive LGBT+ issues via lecture series, creative interventions, and networking events while reducing stigma and stereotyping of LGBT+ people.
We will aim to work towards conditions for change: working with education, arts, culture, as well as sports bodies and other workplaces (corporate, statutory and public bodies) to enhance engagement of LGBT people and bring LGBT cultural issues to the forefront.
We will aim to work towards creating a resource base of LGBT practitioners for educational and statutory bodies and future media use. It is a great opportunity for people who acted as informal ambassadors to work towards creating LGBT ambassadorships structures.
