For Lawyers and Advisers

The Trust welcomes contact and dialogue with those who support our aims and objectives.

For individuals seeking advice

The Trust is not in a position to give legal advice on individual cases, but if you or someone you know is affected by laws criminalising same-sex sexual activity, we will do our best to assist you and/or refer you to an organisation or lawyer who can help you. Please note that we are a small team, and we may not always be able to respond to individual enquiries, particularly where the subject matter falls outside our charitable objectives and expertise.
