Welcome to Bradford Equity Partnership

Equity Partnership is a charity set up and delivered by LGBT people in Bradford and the surrounding areas.


Equity Partnership delivers training to a wide range of organisations to give them the knowledge and tools to combat homophobia and transphobia and to help them create LGBT friendly workplaces and services.

Training & Awareness


We support LGBT groups and individuals to have a say in the decisions taken by agencies, which affect our lives, and work in partnership with other voluntary and statutory agencies, such as Bradford Council and Bradford Hate Crime Alliance.

Our Influence

The Equity Centre

Our community centre provides a safe and relaxed space for all LGBT people to socialise and learn. It is also available for hire, being a fully-equipped training resource and a venue for events right in the centre of Bradford.

The Centre


Equity Partnership undertakes research to identify the needs and opinions of local LGBT people. This research is used to influence and educate agencies so that they are able to be more inclusive.

A Fantastic Woman Showing and Discussion

The Picturehouse Bradford is showing A Fantastic Woman from Friday 16th March.

Showtimes can be found here.

There will be a panel discussion held before the first showing from 5.45pm. The panel will include Saorsa, Helen and Stephanie from Chrysalis in Lancashire.

Best known to international audiences for his acclaimed fourth film, Gloria (2013) – which garnered Paulina García the Best Actress Award at the Berlin International Film Festival – Argentinian born, Chilean director Sebastián Lelio turns after a four-year absence with A Fantastic Woman. Featuring another stellar lead performance, Lelio’s latest feature stars Daniela Vega as Marina, a transwoman dealing with grief, transphobia and cold, humiliating bureaucracy.

A vision of defiant resistance, Marina’s trials are kick-started by the death of her lover, Orlando (Francisco Reyes). Having to inform Orlando’s family of the tragedy, Marina is met with suspicion and hostility due to her status as a transwoman. Instead of being comforted during her grief, Marina finds herself having to fight for her home, her rights and even custody of a beloved pet dog. Provocatively queer and female-centred, the Almodovaresque A Fantastic Woman is also deeply intelligent, sexy and tender.
