On Thursday 11th September, 6.30-9.30pm at LGBT Youth Scotland in Leith, we will delve into the topic of the labels and language we use to identify ourselves.

What words would you choose to define yourself and what labels do you prefer, if any? Hear guest speakers and have your say in a safe and inclusive space as we explore the true diversity of our community, how labels and language impact us and how organisations like LGBT Health and Wellbeing can best promote inclusivity.

Booking is essential and free. The venue is TBC so register and we'll update you ASAP.
