West Lothian Courier - - News -

We are com­mit­ted to ac­tively pro­mot­ing di­ver­sity, equal­ity, in­clu­sion and LGBT rights in West Loth­ian by main­stream­ing the agenda into ev­ery­thing that we do as a coun­cil, as well as work with our part­ners to achieve this goal. West Loth­ian Coun­cil is al­ready a Stonewall Di­ver­sity Cham­pion and is com­mit­ted to ad­vanc­ing LGBT equal­ity.” Fer­gus MacMil­lan, chief ex­ec­u­tive of LGBT Youth Scot­land, who pre­sented both Deans and CLD Youth Ser­vices with their awards, added: “We are de­lighted to present the Gold LGBT Char­ter to West Loth­ian Coun­cil CLD youth ser­vices. Work­ing to make ser­vices more in­clu­sive of trans­gen­der peo­ple and reach­ing out di­rectly to the LGBT com­mu­nity in West Loth­ian are im­por­tant parts of what this award recog­nises. Well done to ev­ery­one from the CLD team and young peo­ple from Glit­ter Can­nons on this fan­tas­tic achieve­ment, from ev­ery­one at LGBT Youth Scot­land. Con­grat­u­la­tions also go to pupils, teach­ers and par­ents at Deans Com­mu­nity High School on achiev­ing their Sil­ver LGBT Schools Char­ter award.”
