On September 4th and 5th the national Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) health summit will be held in Bristol. The third annual summit aims to raise the profile of LGBT people in the UK and the health inequalities they face. The event is being hosted by Terrence Higgins Trust and Equality South West.
The conference is aimed at anyone with an interest in health issues, especially those wishing to contribute to and influence public policy.
Paul Dunn, Chief Executive of Equality South West, said: “For too long, LGBT issues have been given less favourable treatment than other areas of equality.
“With the introduction of legal protection for LGBT people in the provision of goods and services, this event will provide a great opportunity for both service providers and individuals to discuss and influence future policies and outcomes.”
This year’s summit will build on the success of previous summits, held in London and Manchester, and will offer delegates an interesting mix of speakers, workshops and activities.
