York LGBT Forum

York LGBT Forum Logo Transparent

The York Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Forum was established in 2006, to act as a strong and unified voice for the local LGBT community. We achieved charity status in 2015. We also represent other minority groups who fall under the LGBT umbrella. Under our charity constitution we have a voting membership, so by becoming a member today you can have a say in the running of the York LGBT Forum! Whilst the Forum works within the York and North Yorkshire area, it isn’t exclusive to York. We have recently started to work internationally. Our Aims are

  1. To promote equality and diversity for the public benefit by:
  2. The elimination of discrimination in relation to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, queer, questioning (LGBT) and allies and associates living within the city of York and its environs;
  3. Challenging homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, or any associated negative attitudes and behaviour within society;
