Highland LGBT Forum and Highland Pride SCIO are charities based in Inverness, each with a committee of local volunteers from across the Highland region.
We aim to promote and organise local events, such as Highland Pride, where everyone is welcome. We also aim to promote fair and equal treatment for LGBT+ people by challenging the stigma and discrimination experienced by them at both community and personal level.
Activities for this group are currently paused and should resume in due course.
