Worried about LGBT issues? Help is available.

The Vicar's Letter in the March Burton News (page 10) generated several angry responses from readers in the April Burton News (page 2) to his comments about LGBT people. We understand that responses continue to come in for the May issue (due out 1st May) about the issue.

Anyone worried and in need of help or support, or just wanting more information about LGBT matters, may be interested to look at the work of Stonewall, the campaigning and support group for LGBT people, which we are pleased to be able to highlight here.

Stonewall offer a great deal of advice and support for those who need it: the contact details are on the website linked above. This covers all areas affecting LGBT people, and includes information on coming out, asylum, discrimination, civil partnership and same sex marriages, and parenting issues such as fostering, adoption, co-parenting, fertility treatment and surrogacy.
