Letters From Mum...To Her Gay Kids
Last year our mum died suddenly. In order to remember her, my gay brother Xander and I (a lesbian) decided to read the letters she wrote to us at university. We found them so funny we started a podcast called:
It is our way of remembering mum whilst doing what we love most: Talking about gay stuff!
As the episodes progress we discuss coming out, being gay parents, having children, and we even get our kids on to ask them questions! It is poignant, touching, but above all funny. You will laugh, you might cry, but you will definitely enjoy the ride.
It is really hard to get any gay parenting stuff out there, and we are constantly battling negative press.
Together we can make LGBTIQ+ parenting normal all over the world.
The Peter Tatchell Foundation
We seek to promote and protect the human rights of individuals, communities and nations, in the UK and internationally, in accordance with established national and international human rights law.
The PTF seeks to raise awareness, understanding, protection and implementation of human rights, in the UK and worldwide. This involves research, education, advice, casework, publicity and advocacy.
The human rights aims and objectives of the PTF are charitable and with a public benefit.
The PTF is independent and non-party political.
Families Need Fathers
Parental divorce or separation should not mean that children lose the love and care of one of their parents.
Families Need Fathers seeks to obtain, for the children, the best possible blend of both parents in the lives of children; enough for the children to realise that both parents are fully involved in their lives. Legally, parents should be of equal status.
Fathers for Justice
In 2001, after Matt O’Connor had what he described as an “epiphany” on Waterloo Bridge, Matt decided that instead of jumping off bridges, dads could aspire to start climbing them, and the idea of Fathers4Justice was born.
He quickly set up designing a new identity for the campaign, including the infamous ‘purple hand’ logo
At LGBT Foundation we have a rich and passionate history of grassroots activism and community involvement, with a track record dating back to 1975.
As the needs of LGBT people have changed so have we, responding to an evolving landscape as well as to changes to health and support needs.
LGBT Foundation (and it’s predecessor The Lesbian & Gay Foundation) formed out of the merger of two community groups, both initially serving LGBT people in Manchester.
Hospitals all around the UK have been referring people to us for many years and we are also in the Macmillan Cancer information leaflet and we continue to raise money for Cancer charities throughout the year
We have a very caring and compassionate team of staff that are able to deal with the sensitivity of medical conditions. We offer a free consultations on a one to one basis where you can sit and discuss your personal requirement.

Schools OUT UK is an education charity that began life as The Gay Teachers Association in 1974.
Our overarching goal is to make our schools and educational institutions safe spaces for our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) communities as teachers, lecturers and trainers; as pupils and students; as parents; as teaching and learning support staff; as site-officers, catering and cleaning staff; and as headteachers, managers and governors.
There is no other organisation that supports such a wide community in attaining such a wide, yet simple overarching goal.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission
The Equality and Human Rights Commission is Great Britain’s national equality body and has been awarded an ‘A’ status as a National Human Rights Institution (NHRI) by the United Nations.
Our job is to help make Britain fairer. We do this by safeguarding and enforcing the laws that protect people’s rights to fairness, dignity and respect.
As a statutory non-departmental public body established by the Equality Act 2006, the Commission operates independently.
We aim to be an expert and authoritative organisation that is a centre of excellence for evidence, analysis and equality and human rights law. We also aspire to be an essential point of contact for policy makers, public bodies and business.
We use our unique powers to challenge discrimination, promote equality of opportunity and protect human rights. We work with other organisations and individuals to achieve our aims, but are ready to take tough action against those who abuse the rights of others.

in LGBT relationships
Domestic violence is classed as any type of abusive behaviour by either partner that attempts to achieve and sustain control over the other. It is all about power and control, trying to manipulate and dominate the other. It happens across all communities, all classes, long term or short term relationships, social classes, ages, different cultures. It can also happen in all types of relationships, even in LGBT relationships. https://www.buckscc.gov.uk/services/community/community-safety/domestic-abuse-resources-for-professionals/domestic-violence-in-lgbt-relationships/

Galop has provided advice, support, research and lobbying around the issues of LGBT+ policing for over 30 years.
Reflecting back on this history proves an inspiration in how far the gay communities (and the police) have come since the early days of intimidation and fear.
You can learn more about Galop's history from our archive of annual reports.
1 in 4 women will experience abuse from a partner or ex-partner at some time in their life and 2 are killed each week. They may be our clients, colleagues – even family and friends.
