About Us

We are Scotland’s community voice for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) people of all age groups, in every corner of the country, established in 2014.

We aim to improve the representation of LGBT people, tackling stereotypes which have been harmful for decades, and giving people the skills and resources to become activists for equality and diversity.

We also strive for better visibility of LGBT people in every community in Scotland, helping reduce isolation and discrimination, making communities stronger and more diverse.

TEAM

Pink Saltire have no permanent paid staff. We are run by a small dedicated team of volunteers and project-based sessional staff, led by our Founder and supported by our Trustees.

Our trustees ensure our charitable objectives are being met and help drive the strategy and future direction of the organisation. They are an essential element of our success, keeping our plans on track and evaluating our success.
