LGBTI equality in Scotland
Connecting LGBTI people is key to reduce isolation, share information and create spaces where people can belong.
Our publication aims to support your LGBTI group as it connects LGBTI people online, helping equip you with knowledge of tools and techniques to get the most from the online space.
Our updated guide for service providers working with LGBT asylum seekers and refugees.
It is based on our original research report ‘Sanctuary, Safety and Solidarity — Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Scotland’.

Scotland is set to join 34 other countries and states around the world where trans men and women can change their legal gender by self-declaration.
Following months of detailed parliamentary scrutiny and debate, the Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill was passed by the Scottish Parliament today by 86 votes to 39.
We thank all MSPs who supported the bill, and those who engaged constructively on amendments to it.

We are LGBT+ groups, and organisations from all over Scotland in all our diversity.
This week, the Scottish Parliament has a historic opportunity to continue Scotland’s journey towards full social and legal equality, for all LGBT+ people, by passing a new law which will remove bureaucratic and dehumanising barriers to legal gender recognition for trans men and women.
We call on MSPs to reject amendments that would undermine the core principles of the bill.
We can provide high quality online training to public service providers and employers in Scotland, to help mainstream LGBTI+ equality, rights and inclusion.
The Scottish LGBTI+ Rainbow Mark has been developed in consultation with LGBTI+ communities and demonstrates a commitment to LGBTI+ inclusion.
