Welcome to Bradford Equity Partnership

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


Training

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

Influence

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

Research

West Yorkshire Queer Stories

Mesmac’s West Yorkshire Queer Stories project will be visiting the Equity Centre on Tuesday 24th July 6-7.30 pm for anyone interested to give their stories and experiences to the project.

The West Yorkshire Queer Stories project aims to collect and preserve LGBTQ+ experiences and objects. For too long LGBTQ+ histories have been ignored or seen as unimportant; the West Yorkshire Queer Stories Project aims to change that. It’s important that a range of people from all over West Yorkshire are involved so that all our voices are heard. The project will record personal memories, as well as collecting objects like badges and photos. Everything we collect will add to our LGBTQ+ heritage and show the remarkable range of people and experiences within our communities.

Rachel & Ross are currently recruiting volunteers for the project and participants to tell their stories or donate things. If you’re interested in being involved, they’d love to hear from you!
