Birmingham LGBT supported by Umbrella Health are committed to providing quality, accessible and culturally competent services for all sections of the LGBT community.
Our South Asian & Middle Eastern LGBT Sexual Health and well-being service is delivered by our South Asian & Middle Eastern Sexual Health promotion worker. This dedicated role is here to provide support, information and guidance with a focus on enabling access to appropriate sexual health and well-being services.

As South Asian and Middle Eastern Men who have sex with Men / LGBT people we may experience a range of issues such as pressures to get married, forced marriage, honour based violence, stigma, homophobia and transphobia.
There may often be a lack of understanding around various types of sexuality often stigmatized from our own communities. This can often lead to isolation, anxiety and stress.
At Birmingham LGBT we offer a safe, supportive, confidential and non-judgmental service where you can talk to us about your concerns.
One of the main benefits of this service is being able to talk to someone from a South Asian background who can listen to any cultural concerns you have in relation to sexual health & well-being. We understand that for some people talking to another South Asian person may not be helpful which is why we have a diverse Health Promotion Team that is inclusive of Trans, Lesbian and Bisexual workers. There is a specific focus on ‘men who have sex with men’ and engaging in the group to increase sexual health testing.
We can offer regular 1 to 1’s around sexual health and listen to your concerns around sexuality, faith, culture, and the impact this has on you.
We can let you know more about the types of sexual health testing we do with up to date information to enable you further to make your own decision to have regular sexual health tests. We can let you know about the various independent and Birmingham LGBT run South Asian groups. We get good positive feedback as people that attend these groups often let us know how less isolated they feel.
We can listen to your concerns and where appropriate we can refer or signpost you to our specialist services which may help such as Peer Mentoring, Domestic Violence and counselling.
We also work with other partner organisations such as RSVP (Rape and Sexual Violence Project) who offer specialised LGBT sexual abuse services and UKLGIG (UK Lesbian & Gay Immigration Group).
RANG is a social support group open to South Asian & Middle Eastern men (and trans masculine men) who may identify as gay or bisexual.
