LGBT+ Co-operators – Co-operative Party

LGBT+ Co-operators is open for all LGBT+ members of the Co-operative Party.

We aim to:

  • Encourage LGBT+ people to become active members of the Co-operative Party
  • Support the promotion of more LGBT+ candidates internally in the Co-operative Party and for public office at all levels
  • Campaign for full legal and social equality for LGBT+ people
  • Facilitate engagement between LGBT+ people in all parts of the co-operative movement to support appropriate practical and policy responses to the needs of LGBT+ communities

We are developing a programme of support, training, development, campaigning and social activities. Please get in touch if you would like to help us or to become a member of the group email, like our Facebook group or follow us on Twitter to join in the discussion.

Find the Co-op Party’s policy document on Women & Equalities here.

We held our 1st LGBT+ Co-operators Conference in November 2018 with great speakers and a good debate on the way forward for the group.  An action plan will be available soon.

Chris Penberthy was elected Chair and Jane Cameron was elected Secretary of the group.
