“I feel it is important for people who have a learning disability to understand and know of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual community. It may empower some of them to come out and accept who they are, whether they have feelings for people of the same gender or feel like they’ve been born into the wrong gender. Awareness may also help people with Learning Disabilities to understand and accept others in the LGBT community.
A couple of years ago I came out as gay and I feel it is a weight lifted off my shoulders.”
The Learning Disability Pride has been set up to help celebrate people with learning disabilities within the LGBT Community. People who have a learning disability can host event and attend events within their local community.
