The Welsh Government is committed to ensuring equal treatment for lesbian, gay and bisexual people in Wales.
When you access local services, for example in healthcare or education, the last thing that should be on your mind is whether you will be treated differently or less well because of your sexual orientation. The Welsh Government believes that no-one should be denied opportunities because of their sexual orientation and is committed to ensuring equal treatment for lesbian, gay and bisexual people in Wales.
The Assembly provides funding to Stonewall Cymru (external link), the advisory body on the needs of Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual (LGB) people in Wales. It has also provided funding assistance for the Cardiff Wales Mardi Gras (external link) since 2002 and the Terrence Higgins Trust (external link).
Information on support for people who identify themselves as Transgender can be found via the gender section.
