Our homes should provide us with safety, shelter, & security - but alongside these necessities, our homes determine our access to jobs, schools, health care, and economic & social opportunities. We build our lives on these foundations, yet, nationally, access to secure housing is less assured for Scottish tenants who are LGBTQI+.
Join us in this training to explore the complex social and political history of housing and homelessness for those outwith traditional gender expressions or sexual identities. We'll look at how this history has shaped the experiences of LGBTQI+ tenants today; explore how, as a tenants' union, we can best defend and support out LGBTQI+ members; and how these struggles, among others, feed into an urgent need for tenants to collectively stand up to landlords in solidarity with one another.
