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.
