National LGBT survey – please complete
Please see the following link to the Government National LGBT survey. This survey/consultation closes on Sunday 15th October at 11.45pm. We would encourage member unions to ask their LGBT members to take part in the survey in order to ensure their voices are heard.
P.S. sorry for the short notice I didn't realise that there was such a shory deadline for completion.

PCS Northern Region Trans-Day of Remembrance 2017
Every year, across the world, on November the 20th there are commemorations in honour of trans people who have been murdered or attacked – giving recognition and respect to a section of our community who are habitually overlooked, or purposely ignored. Reliable studies show that the trans suicide rate is way above the national average.
PCS Northern Region LGBT Network
An introduction from the Chair.
For those who don’t know me, I’m Eddy Nixon and I am the new Chair of the PCS Northern Region LGBT Network.
So who are we and what do we do? Well, we are a group of PCS members across the region who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender, or are advocates.
The great thing about it is that you do not have to be a TU Rep to be a member of the Network. You just need to have an interest in the issues relevant to LGBT members. So that’s who we are, what do we do?
Why not come along to our next meeting and see for yourself?
The Network can only be as effective as those who form its membership, so I would encourage anyone who would like to join us to come along to our next meeting which is at 10.00am on Friday 27th January 2017 at Regional Office in Newcastle and should finish by 12.30pm prior to the Network’s Holocaust Memorial Day event at 13.30pm. You will find a warm and supportive welcome in a secure and safe environment.
Thank you, and I hope to see you at the next meeting.
Eddy Nixon PCS Northern Region LGBT Chair.
