IMPROVING THE LIVES OF LGBTI YOUNG PEOPLE IN SCOTLAND: LGBT YOUTH SCOTLAND'S MANIFESTO 2016-2021

This manifesto has been written based on research and consultation with LGBTI young people across Scotland. With 20 actions to achieve by the year 2021, the manifesto outlines the steps that would lead to a more inclusive Scotland. 

Each action will contribute to achieving the following priorities:

 1. LGBTI young people have the services and support they need to thrive and their rights are fully realised

2. LGBTI young people feel safe, supported and included in their education, across all settings

3 All transgender and intersex young people are recognised and included in Scottish legislation and policy

4. LGBTI young people feel safe growing up in Scotland, with their specific needs recognised and addressed by Police Scotland and the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service

5. LGBTI young people have improved mental, sexual and physical health


The manifesto provides evidence and context for each of the 20 actions and can be downloaded here
