Plymouth Fairness Commission, which launched in April 2013, has been set up as an independent body to help make the city a fairer place to live and work. Chaired by Dame Suzi Leather, it is made up of professionals with a variety of expertise, including representatives from the police, health, private companies, charities, social enterprises and community groups.
The Plymouth Fairness Commission are inviting members of the LGBT Community in Plymouth to a ‘Listening Event’ that will be held on Monday 14th October at Plymouth Arts Centre.
Come along between 6 and 8.30pm to the meet some of the commissioners and share with them the issues that effect you, areas of inequality in the city, and put forward any suggestions you have to make Plymouth a fairer place.
Pride in Plymouth volunteers will be there with the hard evidence of how Plymouth City Council treated us very unfairly over the organisation of Pride in the Park. We will also highlight the total lack of support from the council for PRIDE and other events that help support and build the LGBT community. The tick boxing and underfunding that has gone on for some years demonstrates how little respect the council has for LGBT people in our city. It would suit the council if we remained invisible – out of sight out of mind!
