Welcome to Galop, the LGBT+ anti-violence charity.
If you’ve experienced hate crime, sexual violence or domestic abuse, we’re here for you. We also support lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer people who have had problems with the police or have questions about the criminal justice system.
We’re shocked and upset to hear about a young trans man who now has the label of sex offender because he didn’t disclose his gender history. If you are too, please sign the Scottish Transgender Alliance e-petition
We’ve been nominated for Charity or Community Organisation of the year in the 2013 G3 Readers Awards. Please vote for us here: http://www.outg3awards.co.uk/g3-voting-form.html! The Awards take place on 27 April so you’ve only got a short while left to get voting!
We’re delighted that The Campaign For Homosexual Equality have supported Galop financially to help us produce our new resource assisting gay and bi men to delete cautions and convictions for consensual sexual offences.
Galop client, John Crawford, has been speaking to the BBC about his experiences to overturn a conviction from the 1950s, before sex between two men was decriminalised in 1967. We can also help others in a similar position.
We’ve launched a brand new campaign that aims to promote honest, clear communication around sex between guys. With specially commissioned images from amazing photographer Del LaGrace Volcano, let’s start being honest about what’s happening and changing how we deal with our communication and behaviour so sex can be good for everyone!
