LGBT Bristol works in partnership with Bristol City Council to empower lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people to become actively involved in community life.  We pride ourselves in challenging homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in the wider community and helping to promote understanding of equality and inclusion of LGBT+ people.

We also campaign, consult and provide information.  Each year LGBT Bristol celebrates and supports the major calendar events in the City’s LGBT+ life such as, LGBT History Month, IDAHO, Pride Bristol, Trans Day of Remembrance and the LGBT Film Festival.

Current Events

Recruitment of LGBT Bristol Trustees 
Currently, we are seeking Trustees, including a Treasurer to join our board. All LGBT Bristol members are eligible to apply and a full induction will be offered.
  • Do you have ideas, some skills or experiences that you think would have helped you and may help other LGBT+ people?
  • Would you like to expand your network of LGBT+ people, both socially and professionally?
  • Do you believe that equality for everyone is essential?

The most essential skill that you will have is that you are a member of  Bristol’s LGBT+ communities and that, simply put, you want more for LGBT+ people in Bristol.  We will ask you to commit to attending four meetings and one annual general meeting per year.

If this is for you, please contact Sarah-Louise Minter for further information about LGBT Bristol’s objectives and projects at sarah@lgbtbristol.org.uk
