Being LGBT co-ordinator provides me with the opportunity to engage, support and encourage local LGBT members to take an active role. I try to use this platform to educate and inform people, both inside and outside of the party.
I am active in the local LGBT community, helping to organise regular events for LGBT individuals and allies in Cheltenham and the surrounding areas. This is especially important to me. I take great pride in leading our efforts to create a safe space for LGBT people in Gloucestershire.
The Labour Party and its inherent values of tolerance and inclusivity serves the same purpose. We cannot have inclusivity without solidarity, and in this role I hope to engage with the community further.
