Welsh Government’s LGBTQ+ Action Plan

Merched Cymru and LGB Alliance Cymru are working together to respond to Welsh Government’s LGBTQ+ Action Plan.

We believe the proposed LGBTQ+ Action Plan is bad for lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, women and children. We stand for safety, fairness and inclusion.

We call on Welsh Government to can the plan and start again.

The consultation closes on 22 October 2021.

Tell Welsh Government #NoThankYou #DimDiolch #SexNotGender #RhywNidRhywedd
