The Rainbow Project believes our elected MLAs should ensure the interests of the LGBT community are a focus for the new Assembly term, and accordingly should address the following six areas of concern in the next mandate as outlined in The Rainbow Project’s Policy Priorities 2016-2021

  • Improve the educational experiences of LGB&T young people
  • Investment in mental, physical and sexual health services for LGB&T people
  • Publication of a Sexual Orientation Strategy & Action Plan
  • Equality of opportunity for same sex couples who want to start a family
  • Introduce legislation for equal civil marriage
  • Legislate for state recognition of a person’s gender by self-declaration
