For over 30 years LGBT Humanists has promoted humanism as a rational, naturalistic worldview that trusts the scientific method as the most reliable route to truth and encourages a moral and ethical life based on logic, reason and compassion. We campaign for equality and diversity, particularly relating to sexual orientation and identity – both in the UK and internationally. We’re a volunteer-led section of Humanists UK and entirely funded by supporter donations.

We were first founded in 1979 in response to the Gay News blasphemy trial, and we’ve blazed a trail arguing for LGBT liberation by challenging religious homophobia and standing up to religious opposition to LGBT rights. From equalising the age of consent, and campaigning for same-sex marriage and more recent campaigns to ban the horrific practice of ‘conversion therapy’, our members have always been on the right side of history.

We also organise community-based events around the UK for LGBT humanists and friends to meet, get to know each other, and share ideas. We are proud to take part in Pride events and marches across the UK each year, and to vocally celebrate International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia – which we helped to bring to the UK in 2005.
