12 February 2018

A collection of staff at the headquarters of the downed tools at midday on Monday 12 February to join Chief Executive Dr Navina Evans to pose for a photograph with the rainbow LGBT+ Pride flag - in solidarity with LGBT+ communities all over the world. February is LGBT+ History Month - a month-long annual observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, marks the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements.

LGBT+ History Month provides role models, builds community, and makes the civil rights statement about the national and international contribution of LGBT people.

ELFT is marking LGBT+ month in a range of ways. We are running a series of 'Coming Out' stories shared by our own staff which gives insight into the mood of the times when they came out and their own personal experiences.

There are a range of events planned  across the Trust for staff and service users from get-togethers with rainbow iced cake to film screenings.
