Lots of the big issues that affect us aren’t decided at Westminster or in Holyrood.
Our councils make decisions about the schools we send our children and young people to, the care our parents and grandparents receive, and the kind of communities we live in.
The decisions they make affect the lives of LGBT people – from whether or not our schools talk about LGBT issues, to what we can do to keep our streets safe and how LGBT people should be treated by public services.
There are many different ways to get involved in changing things for the better.
Your voice can make a difference
Your council can change the lives of LGBT people – but only if you speak up.
