Gender and Sexual Diversity
This month we celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, and transgender people while promoting unity, inclusion, and awareness of gender and sexual diversity.
Local Champion: Lori Ward
Lori is the Director of PFLAG London which supports, educates and provides resources to parents whose children have come out and told them they are homosexual, bisexual or transgender.
