LGBT Labour are supporting Scottish labour as it tries to increase the diversity of people standing to be councillors.
There is a taster session on becoming a councillor for LGBTI members being run by the Scottish party open to LGBT Labour members. LGBT Labour will be looking to roll out training like this to England and Wales too.
