The Safe To Be Me: Global Equality Conference team is working hard with a range of domestic and international stakeholders to shape its programme and delivery. No formal invitations to the event have issued yet, but we are planning on a wide range of global participation, recognising that countries are at different stages of the journey towards LGBT+ equality. We welcome attendance from any country who wants to make progress towards that goal.
