Answered By: 
The Mayor

My officers regularly meet with both the LGBT and trans communities on my behalf. The July 2014 LGBT Stakeholder Group meeting was chaired by Munira Mirza, my Deputy Mayor for Education and Culture. The main agenda item was Health, which included a presentation by Public Health England. Education will be the main focus of the January 2015 meeting, which my Deputy Mayor has agreed to attend.


My annual Trans Stakeholder Group meeting in September 2014 discussed the experiences of young trans people, including in education, and was consulted on the Mayor’s Health Inequalities Strategy Delivery Plan.
