You are not alone

Ensuring LGBTQ+ people are included and have a ‘place’ in the Bailiwick community.

Our Events

Liberate organises events for the LGBTQ+ community so we can more easily get involved in island life. We support LGBTQ+ people however we can, together with their families, friends, and others around them. We work to reform outdated laws and practices, and we inform and educate people on LGBTQ+ experiences and issues.

Activity & support groups

We host regular events, group activities and support groups to create safe spaces and to make sure that LGBTQ+ people are included in the Bailiwick. We hope that this increases visibility and helps to break down stereotypes, assumptions, and to reduce any fears people may have.

What we do

Our reason for existence focuses on four key principles: Reform, Inform, Support, and Include.

    Reform

    We campaign to reform related laws, policies, and practices to ensure that LGBTQ+ people can enjoy the same freedoms and protection as everyone else in the Bailiwick of Guernsey.

    Inform

    We engage with the public to ensure high levels of education on a wide range of LGBTQ+ issues and experiences. We providing training to organisations and deliver LGBTQ+ inclusion and understanding lessons.

    Support

    We are here to support LGBTQ+ people and those around them. We offer advice and support to anybody struggling with their gender identity or sexuality. We work with the others around them (e.g. the public, their family, friends, peers, colleagues, or organisations) who may have problems in relation to their LGBTQ+ identity.

    Identity

    We strive for inclusion for LGBTQ+ individuals across all levels of society. We aim for all to be included regardless of their gender identity, sexuality, or any other intersectional 'minority group' characteristics.

Liberate is led by LGBTQ+ folk, for LGBTQ+ folk.

We are made up of a virtual rainbow of people from every different gender and sexual identity you could possibly think of. By having such a diverse crowd involved we can operate on many different levels as we all bring something different to the group. If you'd like to get involved, please get in touch with us!
