LGBT Bristol works in partnership with Bristol City Council to empower lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people to become actively involved in community life. We pride ourselves in challenging homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in the wider community and helping to promote understanding of equality and inclusion of LGBT+ people.
We also campaign, consult and provide information. Each year LGBT Bristol celebrates and supports the major calendar events in the City’s LGBT+ life such as, LGBT History Month, IDAHO, Pride Bristol, Trans Day of Remembrance and the LGBT Film Festival.
Funding cuts mean we needed to move again and our office is now at The Park Centre, Daventry Road, Knowle, Bristol, BS4 1DQ.
Many thanks to the St Paul’s Learning Centre team who gave LGBT Bristol such a warm and friendly service while we were with them.
Our office telephone number: 07804 945 849 (Tues – Thurs only)
- Do you have ideas, some skills or experiences that you think would have helped you and may help other LGBT+ people?
- Would you like to expand your network of LGBT+ people, both socially and professionally?
- Do you believe that equality for everyone is essential?
The most essential skill that you will have is that you are a member of Bristol’s LGBT+ communities and that, simply put, you want more for LGBT+ people in Bristol. We will ask you to commit to attending four meetings and one annual general meeting per year.
If this is for you, please contact Sarah-Louise Minter for further information about LGBT Bristol’s objectives and projects at firstname.lastname@example.org
Walk Out (in partnership with Walk for Health)
We are very grateful for the funding of this project to ‘Awards for All’ and Lloyds Bank Foundation. We are working alongside Walk for Health providing an LGBT walking group with the aim of reducing isolation for disabled and older LGBT people.
When is the next WalkOut?
Since June 2013, we have been working with our partners in the provision of Bristol’s Hate Crime Services, which is now the Bristol Hate Crime and Discrimination Service.
