**AMAZING** What the Green Party is doing for the LGBTIQA+ community!

LGBTIQA+ Greens Pledge

The Green Party is electing it’s new team of leaders. A new leadership team alongside members of the Green Party Executive will be elected in September.

We’ve asked all candidates to sign up to our 8 point pledge. We believe it’s so important that all elected officials in the Green Party wholeheartedly back LGBTIQA+ rights.

LGBTIQA+ rights are human rights The Green Party has always been at the forefront of supporting equality. At a time where rights are under attack it’s vital we elect people who are committed wholeheartedly to our struggle. LGBTIQA+ Greens are asking candidates for our internal election to sign the LGBTIQA+ Greens pledge. We want to know that you’ll work tirelessly to fight for LGBTIQA+ equality. We ask you to commit to: Campaign with the LGBTIQA+ Greens to protect trans rights in the Equality Act and fight for reform of the Gender Recognition Act. For a kinder and less bureaucratic process for recognising trans people’s gender Recognise non binary identities are valid and promise to ensure they are recognised in internal processes and in wider society Supporting reserved places on the Green Party Council for LGBTIQA+ people Supporting efforts to get more LGBTIQA+ people elected to be Councillors and more Supporting gender affirming healthcare for trans youth rejecting ideological interference with current practice Agree to press for full implementation of the government's LGBT+ Action plan including legislating a ban on conversion therapy Calling for proper funding for trans healthcare in the NHS to reduce 3 year+ waiting lists Supporting LGBT+ inclusive schools in line with the new Relationship and Sex Education curriculum due to roll out from September
