The branch has recently elected an LGBT Co – ordinator, Marius Jennings, who has this message for our LGBT members.
Bristol has a dynamic range of LGBT groups and events within the city. Having recently taken on the role of LGBT officer for Bristol Branch I’m keen for LGBT members to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can jointly come up with ideas regarding LGBT support I can offer member. This could include signposting, develop strategies to support LGBT members, Bristol Pride, offering advice and support, an updated LGBT space on the branch website, linking into relevant networks, as well as making sure our members voices are represented at the yearly UNISON’s LGBT Conference.
Additionally, Bristol Branch is also looking to support other local branches in the area through providing a centralised LGBT UNISON group. The idea being that branches would have a resource available to assist and turn to for LGBT issues and events. Please get in touch either through the branch or directly with me if you are interested.
