Take a stand against homophobia

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are asking staff, patients and members of the public to support them in taking a stand against homophobia.
"We believe that it is all our responsibility to ensure that everyone who works for or uses the health service is treated fairly.

We want to make it clear to everyone that homophobia is no different to racism or sexism and has no place in NHS Greater Glasgow Clyde."

LGBT UNISON logoLesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are still denied equality in the workplace - too often we face discrimination and harassment instead of a fair deal. Joining UNISON gives you a voice in Britain's biggest public services union, which is committed to working for LGBT rights.

Lesbians, gay men, bisexual and transgender people in UNISON organise locally and nationally to support each other, to identify discrimination, to increase awareness of LGBT rights and to campaign for change. The UNISON group voted in 2005 to become an LGBT group and we are working to build bisexual and transgender members and issues into the core of our group. Together we can speak up for our rights at work and improve each other's lives.
Out in UNISON is our printed LGBT newsletter mailed direct to members on request - just add your name to our confidential mailing list. unison.org.uk/out/mailinglist.asp.

About Self Organisation

To make sure all our members have a voice in the union, UNISON members have set up 'self-organised groups' to provide a voice for people who are traditionally under represented. UNISON has groups at national, regional and local level for women, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender members, black members and disabled members. These groups are designed to be self-organising but also integral to the union's structures.
