Please donate to help us do our work!
Weʼre raising £50,000 to help us assert the right of lesbians, bisexuals and gay men to define ourselves in terms of same-sex sexual orientation. Gender is merely a social construct.
Thank you to every single one of you who has donated so far. Your contributions have already helped us to highlight our aims and nudge the argument in our direction despite the huge forces arrayed against us.
We have been overwhelmed by your support and kind messages, which prove the need for such an organisation as ours to exist.
We will be keeping you up to date with everything we do and sharing more information about our progress. Some of the money you have given us has already been used for the first essential actions on the list below. We will naturally provide accounts in due course so that you can be sure that your donations are being spent wisely.
We are less than a year old and your reaction suggests to us that we need to think big. So please continue to support us – either with a one-off donation or monthly donations which you can make on this page.
Our Founding Event
A group of lesbians, gay men and bisexuals resolved at a meeting in Central London 22 Oct 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 statement emphasising the importance of biological sex rather than the gender theories which they regard as pseudo-scientific and dangerous.
The meeting was set up following the 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.
We are a young organisation, yet we have been inundated with offers of support and help. This means that we have to act quickly to harness this enthusiasm and energy.
Our plans are as follows:
Pre-launch – now until end of Jan 2020:
*Establish legal entity [done] and apply for full charitable status [in progress]
*Engage professional help to design logo and marketing materials (task based not full time) [done]
*Engage digital media assistant to run social media accounts – as above
*Website to be professionally enhanced and optimised – as above [done]
*One salaried administrative staff member to coordinate the project staff and the volunteer working groups already set up (comms team, mission statement team, EHRC enquiry team, international liaison team, UK liaison team, steering group)
*All internet, phone and communication costs
*An event organiser to arrange the official launch of the group in Jan 2020
*Launch costs will 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 female) who started on the path of transition as teenagers and have since changed their mind. Now young adults, they have come to realise that a terrible mistake has been made. Some have had puberty blockers and/or cross-sex hormones; others have had healthy breasts removed. This “trans-regret” is a very sad phenomenon which is growing in extent. 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 grassroots donations. 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 sexual orientation 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.
Since the meeting of 22 October 2019, the steering group of the new LGB Alliance has developed the position statement adopted at that meeting into a list of aims, a mission statement and our code of conduct.
