The partnership was created in 2017 by DG Voice, Dumfries and Galloway Multicultural Association, Dumfries and Galloway LGBT Plus and LGBT Youth Scotland, who work together towards a shared vision of the region as a place where diversity is respected, celebrated and everyone feels safe and included.
Co-ordinator Frank Morgan, pictured above, of DG Voice, said: “When the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was first adopted 70 years ago, the chair of the committee that drafted it said that ‘universal human rights begin in small places, close to home’. Our partnership focuses on exactly this – the rights of people close to home in the region.
“We are very keen to find out more about peoples’ experiences and better understand what we can do to ensure a more equal and diverse region for everyone who lives here.”
