About Us

GLADD is the UK's only organisation that unites and represents LGBTQ+ doctors, dentists, medical and dental students from all over the country.

We open our membership to any doctor, dentist, medical or dental student who supports the values and constitution that GLADD stands for.


Education & Activism

GLADD has a respected national voice in LGBTQ+ health activism and education, working with leading figures such as the British Medical Association, General Medical Council, Royal Colleges and Parliament. We collaborate with universities and the NHS to further research into LGBTQ+ health issues and deliver training aimed at empowering those working in and studying healthcare to tackle discrimination in support of their LGBTQ+ colleagues and patients.


Get Involved

You can keep up to date with what GLADD is doing on Facebook and Twitter. If you would like to get involved with our current projects or have an idea of how we can support your work, please get in touch. Whether you would like to help deliver LGBTQ+ teaching locally, run a research project or have seen an opportunity for improving LGBTQ+ health & healthcare, we’d love to hear from you.


Students make up a significant proportion of our GLADD membership and there are opportunities all year round for you to get involved with our work and community.

Find out more about our student prize and mentoring programme, which are open to all.



You can contact GLADD via the form below and one of our committee members will get back to you as soon as they can.

The committee are all working professionals and full time students so please allow a minimum of 5 working days for your query to be answered. We observe the usual principles of confidentiality for all communications with us.

Please note that GLADD is unable to provide medical or dental advice, or recommend LGBTQ+ practitioners. LGBTQ+ patients may find the GMC's Guide for LGBT Patients useful. Your GP or dentist is usually the best first contact for health advice.
