Out to Access is Scotland’s only funded project that focuses on the intersections of disability with gender identity and sexual orientation. The project is run in partnership with Inclusion Scotland and Glasgow Disability Alliance (GDA) and is funded by the Scottish Government Equality Unit.
Out to Access promotes the inclusion of Disabled Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (D/LGBT) people in services through:
We provide tailored one-to-one mentoring for activists that want to focus on the D/LGBT intersections. Community Champions provide personal testimonies at our trainings and events; get support with their own activism activities and participate in the creation of the Out To Access Report.
We have set up two local Action Groups. One in Glasgow, and one in Dumfries. The Action Groups bring a wide variety of different organisations together to network and do partnership work that is focused on the D/LGBT intersections.
We provide both bespoke and general training sessions for organisations on how to better include D/LGBT people in services.
Our Putting the Pieces Together report can be downloaded for free from our intersectional resources page. It is the first Scottish focused report on how disabled LGBT people are being included in services.
