2013 National LGBT Conference
1 August 2013
Carried as Amended

Conference believes:

Feminism has been and remains instrumental in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) liberation as well as in the wider struggle for equalities.

Feminism plays a vital role in the creation of and structures of the LGBT movement and as such feminism is not confined to the women’s movement.

Conference believes that we should smash the misconception that feminism has no place in the LGBT movement and challenge this at every opportunity.

Conference calls on the National LGBT Committee to:

1. Work within UNISON’s structures to request feminist workshops at activist training days open to all gender identities;

2. Work with the National Women’s Committee and other organisations to produce materials which highlight the role feminism plays in the LGBT movement and make them available online.
