LGBT+ History Month: LGBT+ groups and projects across Gloucestershire

Corinium Radio is celebrating the LGBT+ community during LGBT+ History Month by raising awareness of LGBT+ groups and projects across Gloucestershire.

These organisations and initiatives are GayGlos, the LGBT+ Partnership and the LGBTQ History at Gloucestershire Archives exhibition.

GayGlos (gayglos.org) is a registered charity and voluntary organisation in Gloucestershire offering support services to LGBTQ+ people, their family and friends and other organisations.

​Set up in 1989 to provide face-to-face and telephone support services, it quickly expanded into strategic engagement and delivering training and education programmes.

The LGBT+ Partnership (lgbtchelt.co.uk), meanwhile, helps to celebrate, promote and advance diversity​ across Gloucestershire and linked areas.

Started in 2015, it aims to support, advance and champion the LGBT+ community, as well as to bring together organisations and people that have an interest in enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion within Gloucestershire and regions close by.

In addition, the LGBTQ History at Gloucestershire Archives exhibition (gloucestershire.gov.uk/archives/learning-for-all/online-exhibitions/lgbtq-history-at-gloucestershire-archives) is the last stage of a project to explore the histories of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people (as well as anyone who identifies with this group but doesn’t use these labels) in Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire.

It is presented by geographical district, with a summary section at the end.

The above list is non-exhaustive, and Corinium Radio is keen for readers to tag some of the other communities in the comments section of the station’s posts about the list on social media.
