We are committed to embracing and valuing diversity within our organisation and our communities.

We motivate and inspire our communities by enabling all members to grow and achieve their full potential.

Our Objectives

Our objectives are to raise awareness of the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) people in Birmingham and beyond, to advocate for their needs to the wider community and to promote opportunities to LGBT people in Birmingham and beyond to enable them to fully participate in the lives of their community.
