Scottish LGBTI Equality Pledge

We want to see as many MSPs committed to LGBTI equality in the next Scottish Parliament as possible. The Scottish LGBTI Equality Pledge has been developed by the Scottish Trans Alliance, Equality Network, Stonewall Scotland and LGBT Youth Scotland.

The pledge calls for candidates to commit to:

  • Promote positive mental wellbeing for LGBTI people, ensuring that actions to improve Scotland’s mental health specifically address the inequalities LGBTI people face.
  • Support LGBTI people to have equal access to health and social care services, including by reforming NHS gender identity services to be fit-for-purpose
  • Improve LGBTI rights and protections in the law, including by reforming laws on gender recognition and ending conversion therapy.
  • Support LGBTI young people to flourish in schools through the continued implementation of inclusive education.
  • Stand up for all LGBTI people, including the most marginalised – LGBTI people of colour, refugees, disabled people, older people, and trans people.

Please take the time to email your parliamentary candidates to let them know this matters to you, and ask them to sign our LGBTI pledge. It can make a real difference!
