Farewell!

On 30th September 2020 LGBT Bristol closed its doors for the last time.

The Management Committee wishes to thank our members and friends for the years of loyal support in our many campaigns, initiatives, events and meeting in our CIty.

Please note that this website will close down in due course, when the contract with our hosting providers expires and we no longer have a legacy contact.

Since 1994 LGBT Bristol had been working to empower lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, asexual, demisexual, non-binary, pansexual and intersex etc, people – all those who do not identify or fit as either heterosexual or cis-gender – to become actively involved in community life.  We challenged homophobia, biphobia and transphobia and provided education to the wider community about people who do not identify as gender-binary, helping to promote understanding of equality and inclusion of LGBT+ people. Check out what we did.

Bristol Pride rainbow flagThe Charity also campaigned, consulted and provided information for our communities, participating in, supporting and celebrating, all major calendar events in the City’s LGBT+ life, like LGBT History Month, IDAHOBIT, Bristol Pride, Trans Day of Remembrance, Trans Pride South West and the LGBT Film Festival.

The organisation was originally funded by Bristol City Council, to act as a key Equalities Consultee for the LGBT+ community, along withe the other Equality Fora:  Bristol Women’s Voice, Bristol Race Forum, Bristol Multi Faith Forum, Bristol DIsability Equality Forum, Bristol Older People’s Forum.

Our closure has left Bristol without any grassroots  LGBT+ representation
