At a recent NEC meeting, it was agreed that future references to LGBT matters shall now be referred to as LGBT+. The updating of this terminology is regarded as being much more inclusive of the diversity that exists within the rainbow spectrum.

This new terminology also allows for a degree of future proofing and we would be grateful if updates can be implemented accordingly in the Branches and Regions.

Our department would like to place on record our thanks to Helen Cooper, NEC LGBT+ National Lead, for her assistance in this matter.

Any queries on this LTB should be directed to the Equality, Education & Development Department.

Yours sincerely,


Kate Hudson
Head of Equality, Education & Development

19LTB605 – LGBT+
