2008 National LGBT Conference
24 July 2008
Carried as Amended

Conference supports the organisation and participation of events to encourage and celebrate achievements and to promote the involvement of women, black members and disabled members who self define as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered (LGBT).

Conference welcomes and commends the work of the National LGBT Committee regarding the active and positive participation by those who have been traditionally underrepresented in LGBT structures.

Conference reinforces the need for the provision of caucuses and service groups to accommodate the wealth of differences and needs within all LGBT UNISON members.

Conference maintains the support to the National LGBT Conference providing a safe space for all.

However, Conference recognises, at any social event organised for the National LGBT Conference , all are encouraged to participate..

Conference further notes that for women only socials, caucuses and workshops organised for the National LGBT Conference, it should be made clear that these are open to all delegates and visitors who self define as women.

Conference therefore confirms that National LGBT Conference should be accessible and inclusive toward all LGBT delegates and visitors.
