The VisionWorking towards equality for LGBT and other diverse adults, their families and supporters in Dumfries and Galloway.
LGBT Plus aims to empower lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, pansexuals and others questioning or expressing their gender identity and sexuality (otherwise known as LGBT Plus), their families, friends, supporters and allies across Dumfries and Galloway. We support the LGBT community to feel safe, supported and engage more confidently within their local communities and become active citizens by providing a range of events and support services.
“I was surprised that there was so much being offered to people like myself and I wish that I had known about the support offered by D&G LGBT Plus earlier to help me come to terms with my situation” – LGBT Plus Member
“D&G LGBT Plus gives hope to people who feel hopeless, just as I felt. Never would I have believed how different life can be. Thanks to LGBT Plus and alternative self-management, I can now focus on my long-term goals and not my long-term conditions” – LGBT Plus Member
“Now after three years into my transition and being on full medical treatment, I feel the happiest that I have ever felt” – LGBT Plus Member
“The training was a good mix of videos and powerpoint, lots of opportunities to ask questions, given a lot of good information and very educational” – Partner Agency
“Being part of the D&G LGBT Plus team has really brought change, innovation and inspiration to not just my new work role, remit and routine but already improved my health and wellbeing and cemented my place as a valued member of the diverse and evolving D&G community” – LGBT Plus Staff
“I am immensely proud and privileged to work for D&G LGBT Plus, I have watched the organisation and the people we engage with grow and am excited by the future for equality in D&G” – LGBT Plus Service Manager
