The Scottish LGBTI Equality Pledge

The Scottish LGBTI Equality Pledge has been developed by the Equality Network, Scottish Trans Alliance, Stonewall Scotland and LGBT Youth Scotland, national charities working for LGBTI equality and human rights in Scotland.

The pledge calls for candidates in the Scottish Parliament 2021 elections to commit to:

  • Promote positive mental wellbeing for LGBTI people, ensuring that actions to improve Scotland’s mental health specifically address the inequalities LGBTI people face.
  • Support LGBTI people to have equal access to health and social care services, including by reforming NHS gender identity services to be fit-for-purpose
  • Improve LGBTI rights and protections in the law, including by reforming laws on gender recognition and ending conversion therapy.
  • Support LGBTI young people to flourish in schools through the continued implementation of inclusive education.
  • Stand up for all LGBTI people, including the most marginalised – LGBTI people of colour, refugees, disabled people, older people, and trans people.

If you'd like to read about our asks in more depth, we co-developed the LGBTI Equality Manifesto with our partners in the sector. Read it here: The LGBTI Equality Manifesto 2021-2026
