Update on 27 January 2020

Thank you to every single one of you who has donated so far. We wish we could write a separate thank-you message to each of you but please accept our heartfelt thanks.

Your contributions are helping us set up in a responsible way. We have been overwhelmed with your support and kind messages which prove the need for such an organisation as ours to exist.

We believe that 2020 will be a critical year for LGB people, and especially young people. We have produced marketing materials (and merchandise) to use as we launch our message across the UK.

We are approaching all MPs, MSPs , AMs, & MLAs. We need to explain that the time has come for these individuals to speak up on issues around sex and gender. To speak up in defence of respectful free speech. To resist the teaching of unscientific notions of gender identity to children from five years up (currently proposed for schools from September 2020). To stop the erasure of lesbians, gays and bisexuals under a mythical wave of multiple gender identities.

We need to influence Government Departments, the police, the courts, the NHS and public opinion in general. And fast. The task is enormous but we are confident of our success. The tide is turning and we hope that 2020 will be the year where facts and common sense return to public debate.

So please continue to support us - either with a one-off donation or monthly donations, which you can make on this page.

Please follow us on Twitter @AllianceLGB and see our website lgballiance.org.uk

From all of us at LGB Alliance, we wish you a very good and productive 2020!

Background

A group of lesbians, gay men and bisexuals resolved at a meeting in Central London on 22 October 2019 to set up a new “LGB Alliance” to counteract the confusion between sex and gender which is now widespread in the public sector and elsewhere.

The participants – who included former employees and supporters of the lobby group Stonewall, plus doctors, psychiatrists, academics and lawyers with expertise in child safeguarding – agreed a foundation statement revolving around biological sex rather than the gender theories which they regard as pseudo-scientific and dangerous. (This became the mission statement that is now on our website).

The meeting followed a refusal by Stonewall, which was originally set up to fight legal discrimination against gay men and lesbians, to respond to a petition asking it to acknowledge the range of valid viewpoints around sex, gender and transgender politics.

Immediately after that first meeting, we were inundated with offers of support and help. This has mean that that we have had to act quickly to harness this enthusiasm and energy. On 18 January 2020 we launched LGB Alliance Scotland.

Our activities, plans and expenses for the near future are as follows:

Now that we are a legal entity, we have applied for full charitable status.

We engaged task-based professional help to design logo and marketing materials

We are engaging a (task-based) digital media assistant to run social media accounts

Our website is being professionally enhanced and optimised

We will be hiring one salaried administrative staff member to coordinate the project staff and the volunteer working groups already set up (comms, EHRC enquiry, international liaison, UK liaison, steering group) 

All internet, phone and communication costs

An event organiser will be needed to arrange our June conference

Costs include venue hire and security, subsidies for anyone attending who cannot afford the cost of travel, reimbursement of speakers’ travel costs, PR and marketing.

A new charity has been formed recently to support young people (of both sexes but mainly girls) who have changed their mind.  As teenagers they started on the path of transition only to find that as young adults they come to realise that a terrible mistake has been made. Some have had puberty blocking drugs; others have had healthy breast removed.  This is a very sad phenomenon which is growing in number.  We want to offer support to this group through mentoring schemes, meetings, practical advice and social events.

As our organisation grows we will enlist individual supporters but may also have crowdfunding efforts in the future for specific projects. So far all our support has come from the grassroots.  We do not anticipate funding from corporations but we may apply for grants from other charitable foundations in due course.

The new group aims to be an umbrella organisation that supports freedom of speech, accurate biological definitions of sex and fact-based education. It will maintain links to all groups who fight for the rights of lesbians, bisexuals and gay men at a time when Stonewall brands same-sex attraction as transphobic.

It has also called for an end to ‘Stonewall Law’, which deliberately misrepresents the Equality Act, and has asked the Equality and Human Rights Commission to investigate whether Stonewall, as a recipient of public funds, is upholding its public duty to represent the voices of LGB people and facilitate discussion between different groups protected under the Equality Act.

The members of the new Alliance agreed, as part of a 20-point position statement, that:

• lesbianism and homosexuality are same-sex (not same-gender) attraction;

• lesbians are biological women who are attracted to other biological women;

• sex is not ‘assigned’ at birth but observed;

• it is not transphobic for lesbians to have their own spaces and institutions which exclude male-bodied people;

• there is often a link between transgender ideology and the suppression of lesbianism and homosexuality;

• telling children who do not conform to gender stereotypes that they are born in the wrong body is damaging and regressive;

• the soaring numbers of teenage girls suddenly presenting as trans is evidence of social contagion and discomfort about lesbianism
