We now have an online forum set up where people can talk to each, the forum can be accessed using the following link.
A group of Brighton & Hove organisations have come together to develop the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Health Involvement Project (LGBT HIP). It aims to give local LGBT people a voice about healthcare services and issues.
The partner agencies are all first-class providers of services to LGBT people in the city: Brighton LGBT Switchboard, THT South, MindOut, Allsorts Youth Project, Brighton Bothways and the Clare Project. It will involve carrying out activities such as online community surveys and one-to-one and small group interviews.
Sign Up to LGBT HIP - By going to this link, LGBT people can securely register their details with us so that we can keep them posted about all the activities that LGBT HIP will be engaged in. Another way that you can stay informed and take part is to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and our own Brighton & Hove network Zoosh Brighton! Search for LGBT HIP and send us a friend request and we'll be happy to add you. We want to make the sites a lively forum to talk about the issues that matter.
LGBT HIP is open to all LGBT people who live, work or socialise in the city. Please help by passing on this message - the more people involved, the louder our voice! (June 2011)
