The National LGBT Forum is celebrating its first birthday. After meetings in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling it’s the turn of Perth to host the forum and time to tackle some of the more complicated issues affecting LGBT communities.
The next meeting of the forum will look at the topic of race, religion and belief. As well as a panel of speakers from ethnic minority, religious and LGBT communities, part of the forum will be a roundtable discussion on the topic. We’re looking for your ideas and suggestions on what areas you would like to see on the table for discussion.
